The Customer Experience and Business Transformation directorate leads the implementation of our business transformation by leading and embedding the Customer Experience Improvement Strategy into our organisation.
We do this through management of the day to day operations of the Chief Information and Chief Customer Offices and the Boroondara Customer First program – a suite of projects designed to transform Boroondara into an organisation that places the customer at the centre of everything we do.
The directorate includes the following departments:

The Chief Customer office includes the Digital Strategy, Strategic Communications, Customer Support and Corporate Information teams.
