A Career Putting Customers Front And Center

As the Founder and CEO of CX Journey Inc., Annette Franz is leading the charge for a customer-centric landscape for modern businesses. From her ten principles and practices of customer-centricity to their relentless, real-world use, Annette has fundamentally changed how organizations do business—and boosted their bottom lines in the process.

A seasoned CX veteran with 30 years of experience, Annette worked at some of the most premier organizations in the country including J.D. Power, Fidelity, and Mattel before founding CX Journey Inc. in 2011.
