Today, consumers are seeking more than just products; they are craving memorable interactions across numerous touchpoints from companies they can trust. This paradigm shift in consumer expectations has give rise to the need for dedicated professionals and teams who can champion the cause of implementing a Product Experience (PX) Strategy.
But what exactly does it take to build a successful PX Strategy, and who are the individuals who drive it forward? We’ve answered the former in this blog post here, but let’s dive into the latter and outline the instrumental roles and responsibilities of the jobs that make up a PX ecosystem through a fictional fashion retailer, Ziggy Corporation.
Ziggy is a visionary and globally recognized fashion retailer, redefining the way people experience fashion.

We are seeking a visionary and strategic Chief Product Experience Officer (CPEO) to join our dynamic retail brand. As the CPEO, you will be responsible for shaping and executing our Product Experience (PX) Strategy, ensuring our products delight customers, and driving innovation and excellence across our entire product portfolio.

Here at Akeneo, we understand that the journey towards PX excellence is not without its challenges; in fact, many corporations may find themselves ill-equipped to support the full spectrum of these roles at the moment, and that is more than okay.
However, we firmly believe that every organization, regardless of its current stage of PX maturity, can start implementing a PX Strategy today. Even just incremental changes that enhance the customer journey, like improving the completeness and accuracy of your product information, is a step in the right direction.
You also don’t need to immediately go out and hire for all of these roles, like the Ziggy Corporation has. Your current team may already possess the skills and passion needed to support a PX Strategy, so it may make sense for you to harness their potential and provide them with the necessary tools and resources first.
While the roles we’ve outlined today are undeniably critical for PX excellence, their full integration may take some time. But with a customer-first mindset and a dedication to continuous improvement, any organization can join the league of brands that redefine product experiences and pave the way for PX excellence.
