THE 2021
award

Our 30 finalists in the 2021 award hailed from countries around the globe – from Malaysia to Mexico – representing the elite of the CX profession, having fought off competition from 150 fellow applicants.

THE WINNER: Sri Safitri

Deputy Executive VP of Customer Experience and Digitisation, Telkom Indonesia, Indonesia

Assigned with the task of driving customer experience transformation in 2016, Sri has dedicated herself to meeting Telkom’s vision of becoming one of the most customer-centric companies in the world.

In the intervening years she defined a clear CX mission for the organisation, which was built on foundations of rigorous research – PESTEL analysis, Voice of the Customer research, bottom up and transactional NPS analysis and operational performance analysis – and established dedicated units that are accountable to drive CX transformation.

All of this has enabled Sri to launch a series of actions across two tiers – fixing the basics (identifying ‘hygiene factors’ and eliminate defects), and creating WOW moments for customers through differentiated experiences.

“Winning CX Leader of the Year was truly a prestigious and extraordinary achievement that made me feel beyond grateful and complete. The CX Leader of the Year award is a golden opportunity for all CX professionals around the world to both evaluate and receive praise for their hard work, which emphasises the essential nature of customer experience and how it truly impacts business success.”

James Large

“Sri has demonstrated a strong ability for having a ‘peripheral vision’ towards developing her organisation’s CX strategy.”
