Sporton said: “I’m thrilled to be taking this new position. I am passionate about helping our clients to build truly customer-centric business cultures that inspire change and deliver measurable business improvement. This is a really exciting opportunity to help drive the discipline of CX Management at a global level, supporting CX professionals around the world by giving them the tools they need to build customer experience programmes that deliver significant business improvement.”
In addition to driving new strategies in CX methodologies, Sporton will work hand-in-hand with Confirmit’s R&D and Product Management teams to ensure that the company’s solutions meet the ever-evolving needs of organisations committed to driving change.

This is a very exciting year for Confirmit with the fruition of some ground-breaking capabilities that will enable companies to predict and track change in real time.
