Where I came from
Christopher joined Lexden in its early years and has stayed the course ever since. Before Lexden, he developed consulting services for brand agencies, worked as a planner in ad agencies, and originated in direct marketing functions for insurance.
Alongside client work, Christopher hosts our CX Superheroes Podcast series and the EXCO’s Experience the Difference Podcast. He is also a guest contributor to MyCustomer and CX expert speaker for the right audiences. In 2020 he launched the Customer Experience World Games which is a movement bringing CX volunteers together to share their time and talent to create better outcomes for charities.
How I think
“The customer and how to improve their outcome has always been with me, from the start.
I believe if you can inspire customers to value whatever time they spend with you over the others, you can create a sustainable business. So CX is s force for good, creating improvement wherever it goes, from a customer’s retail transaction experience all the way to making a difference in society.
Each day I learn more from my colleagues, my clients, their customers and a select band of experts in the field who inspire. It has helped keep me curious and I am always restless looking to create that better outcome. By its nature its endless.
I also believe in business we should think beyond businesses. I care for those who work with me and those I work for. It’s important, probably the most important role I have.”
Christopher helps organisations apply customer centric management to the complexities of their business, to drive meaningful value to customers, colleagues and the business alike. He directs our strategy to focus on creating more value for more organisations and their employees by delivering better outcomes for their customers. He develops strategy papers for boards, facilitates customer vision workshops, analyses customer sentiments, and shares learned practice to develop other capabilities.
Michael is a true international; born in the UK, raised in Switzerland and conducting business for ABB across East Asia. In 2000 he was posted to Japan as Vice President, and subsequently President, of a joint-venture company with operations in Japan and Taiwan. It was this 7-year posting that really opened his eyes to what customer experience can be, given the right customer-centric mindset. He went on to become Head of Customer Experience, with global responsibility for VoC Programs and complaint. He left ABB in April 2020 to be an independent CX consultant and trainer, working with Lexden since the November 2021.
How I think
“For me, there are three things that are quintessential in CX.
1) Don’t assume you know what the customer wants. Ask!
2) Don’t bother asking if you are not prepared to listen to what the customer has to say and, more importantly, actually do anything about it.
3) Closing the loop with customers is critical. They are not mind-readers. They need to be shown that they have been heard, valued, and taken seriously. This will build a strong foundation for future dialogue and for the establishment of a true partnership.”
Voice of Customer programs, Customer Journey Mapping and Complaint Management. With his CX and Quality Management background, he takes customer insights and transforms them into improvement initiatives, intended to remove the weaknesses in the customer journey map, thereby making a significant contribution to a frictionless customer experience.

Where I came from
With a background in engineering, including courses and seminars on Continuous Process Improvement, I have been working at Lexden since 2020. Prior to that, I collaborated on process improvement initiatives in both the public sector and civil organizations in Mexico. Currently, I am a proud member of the Lexden family in Wroclaw, Poland.
How I think
To have a CX (Customer Experience) mindset, I believe that the first and foremost quality is empathy. It is crucial to think like the customer, to understand their needs and satisfaction, and to make this value a part of your daily actions. Additionally, having analytical thinking to identify opportunities for continuous improvement in processes is equally important. These two pillars are crucial to improve people’s lives through CX.
What I Do:
In projects, I have two main roles. Firstly, I provide support in information technology and software used in the work in progress. If there is a problem with the system, I will be there to assist. Secondly, I am responsible for mapping and elaborating process improvements, adapting them with a customer-oriented approach.
