Since launching its direct sales presence in Australia in 2015, Confirmit has grown its customer base, driving the need for growth in customer experience leadership internally. Farries said he is excited to be joining Confirmit at a time when Australian companies were truly embracing CX solutions and strategies.

“I am delighted to be joining such a talented team that is genuinely passionate about providing better business outcomes,” he said. “Confirmit’s widely respected solutions have been at the forefront for what I believe is a very exciting time for CX in Australia.

“CX is no longer being treated as just isolated projects in separate departments, but as a complete culture that is energising and engaging everyone in the customer-centric organisations that are embracing it.”

Confirm VP global CX consulting, Chris Brown, said the company is delighted to welcome Andrew on-board as part of its expanding team of CX consultants. 

“As a consulting group, our focus is on empowering clients to turn their CX visions into a reality and Andrew’s experience and expertise will be key to delivering that reality to our clients in Australia and New Zealand,” he said in a statement.

Determining our Humanity

‘Business as unusual’ is a term my organisation has adopted to describe the professional aftermath of COVID-19 and the rest of the tragic events this year. Social distancing, perspex screens at counters and masks in all manner of situations have introduced us to a world we were never familiar with. But, as we keep being reminded, this is the new normal. This is the world we created. Yet we also have the opportunity to create something else.
