Getting Intimate with CX Ep11: Australia Post’s chief innovation officer on why customers are building today’s brand reputations


In Episode 11 of this new podcast series, BrandHook MD, Pip Stocks, talks with Australia Post chief innovation officer and former CMO, Greg Sutherland, about how brand reputation today is built on what customers say, how addressing a bad experience successfully can transform customer relationships, and what AusPost is doing to innovate customer interactions.

As an innovation leader and member of the executive committee, Greg is responsible for culture development, services and investments enabling innovation.  This includes incubating and investing in new businesses that support our future in ecommerce delivery and services as well the platforms that can enable everyone to be included.   

Greg joined Australia Post in August 2013 as Chief Marketing Officer, responsible for marketing and customer experience including mobile, online and customer service channels, to help drive Australia Post’s digital transformation and create new and contemporary experiences.  

Prior to this, he held senior group roles at NAB responsible for strategy, brand, marketing, corporate affairs and innovation. During this time, he led a range of high profile initiatives including the brand re-launch from National to NAB, as well as the creation and launch of NAB’s online-only banking subsidiary, UBank.   

Prior to joining NAB, Greg was a partner and director at Boston Consulting Group which included leading the Asia-Pacific ecommerce practice.  

Distributed through CMO from IDG, this 11-part podcast series by BrandHook explores customer intimacy, what makes a great customer experience and which brands Australian leaders think are doing it well. It does this by asking leading brand makers 7 key questions about what makes excellent CX tick.
