A telecoms operator is rewarded for the quality of his customer relations

The French Customer Relations Association bestowed the award for the Best Customer Relations Director on Fabrice André this 30 September, rewarding the change which took place within the Orange Customer Relations Department at the initiative of its successive Directors.

The telecoms sector is progressing towards a digital world rich with innovations that is shaking up user habits. Orange decided to become the European service provider of reference in this revolution and to assist its customers with high standard service and commitment. In achieving this ambition, the Customer Relations Directorate holds a key role in activating priority fields of transformation that brings to life the Orange promise in daily customer contact.

The jury rewarded the implementation of the action plan led by Fabrice André within the scope of his work. “I am very honoured to receive this prize. It rewards the work of the entire team. Without these people who have been committed to this project for years, we would doubtless not have been able to go so far together. This award also rewards the vision of Orange as a company that understood the importance of customer dialogue, team motivation and professionalism to achieve our goals, to make people “choose Orange” (Fabrice André, Customer Relations Director for Orange, France).

Putting the customer relations at the heart of operations
