Profiles in Excellence: Utility Chief Customer Officers

By:  Penni McLean Conner

Penni McLean-Conner, in her book Profiles, shares the stories of eight all-star chief customer officers who have demonstrated success in creating a customer-focused culture, developing a team dedicated to customers and providing valued customer-facing products and services. These CCOs are focused on their customers and their employees. They actively develop their team and love celebrating success. This must-read for aspiring customer service leaders also tells the stories of the CCOs’ career paths and offers a lens into their visions for serving customers now and into the future.

This book will offer a powerful and pragmatic road map…to a quest for utility customer-centricity. The leadership profiles you will witness are instructive, insightful and inspirational. The specifics and how-to’s are as cutting edge as they are practical, obviously forged in the ovens of challenging moments and complex times.  This book is not a one-time drive-by read. It should be studied thoughtfully and applied compassionately.
