More important is that their expertise will help us expand our service offerings to companies looking to leverage customer relationships and break through revenue barriers."
Ambler brings over 20 years of experience to the team, and has worked with industry-leading companies such as Macromedia, Quark, Xerox, NEC and France Telecom. He has extensive experience in incorporating customer feedback into product launches and product marketing, as well as in corporate branding and in aligning sales and marketing programs. In leading the Voice of the Customer practice, Ambler will concentrate on expanding existing offerings, such as the Customer Perception Audit, as well as on introducing new services to help organizations gather and harness customer insight.
