News : Medallia Appoints Dorian Stone as Vice President of Customer Experience Strategy
Palo Alto, Calif., July 24, 2014 -- Medallia, a provider in SaaS Customer Experience Management (CEM) solutions, announced the appointment of Dorian Stone as the company's vice president of customer experience strategies. Dorian joins Medallia's senior team after more than a decade at McKinsey & Company, where he co-founded McKinsey's Global Customer Experience practice, and led North America as a partner from McKinsey's San Francisco office.
"We are extremely excited to have Dorian join our team at Medallia," said Borge Hald, co-founder and CEO of Medallia. "His deep knowledge of customer experience strategy, his long history of working with senior executives across the Fortune 500, and his 'roll up the sleeves' attitude for frontline change are an invaluable combination. We're privileged to have him join our team and work with our customers across more and more industries and geographic markets."
As a leader within McKinsey's global Customer Experience practice, Dorian led customer-centric transformations of historically product and channel-oriented companies. During his tenure at McKinsey, he also role modeled the value of bringing together operations, marketing, and services functions by working with teams on both strategic and operational projects and being one of the first elected partners in both of McKinsey's marketing and operations practices. Before McKinsey, Dorian served as a volunteer and program director in small business development for the U.S. Peace Corps in Panama. He began his career building a regional managed care business on the west coast for small and mid-sized businesses.
Author of many articles and papers on customer experience and loyalty, as well as a frequent speaker at industry forums, Dorian has an MBA from the Wharton School of Business. He also holds a Master's degree in International Studies from the University of Pennsylvania and a Bachelor's degree in Economics and Psychology from Pitzer College of the Claremont Colleges. He also participates on multiple community and professional boards and councils.
