Benoit Soucaret
Benoit Soucaret
Chief Experience Officer

Benoit is responsible for bringing holistic experience to the table and making it an intrinsic part of a company’s strategy and culture, both internally and with its customers. He is a catalyst who sparks excitement and action by shaping the raw material of a company’s capabilities into meaningful experience offerings. And he is an orchestrator who aligns various elements of operations, in tandem with a deep understanding of customer needs, to create and deliver cohesive, customer-pleasing experiences.

With 20 years of experience, Benoit is passionate about the intersection of brand, business, innovation, and technology and the skillful convergence of brand promise with unique experiences. His expertise spans a variety of industries: retail, consumer goods, banking & finance, media & entertainment, travel & hospitality, automotive, high tech, healthcare, B2B, and telco.

When not thinking about next-gen customer-centric experiences, you can find him watching football (soccer) games as an avid supporter of FC Barcelona, or in the south of France with his friends and family, or (food) traveling, especially to his favourite place in the whole world: Tokyo, Japan.
