In the 4th episode of the Creating Superfans podcast, I sat down with Kim Goei, Chief Operating Officer of Fexa. We talk about the under-the-radar aspects of customer experience that customers and entrepreneurs often take for granted. If you’re a fan of intentional experience design like me, you’ll be interested to learn about how Fexa technology can maintain or automate the crucial ingredients that make businesses run seamlessly.

Kim began her career in operations, working with global brands like Virgin Group, Anthropologie, and Reading International, Inc., before joining Fexa in 2018. In addition to her role as COO, she’s on the Board of Directors of Connex to empower facilities to become more inclusive and accessible.
