Chief Customer Officer at Locus Robotics
“Empowering the team to build a strong customer base”
Jasmine Lombardi, Locus Robotics' Chief Customer Officer, is a dynamic, successful, goal-oriented, and adaptable senior management executive with remarkable and established management and leadership credentials. Jasmine manages and leads one of the largest teams in the company, Customer Success. She leads the company's most strategic positions in customer lifecycle management, including deployment/implementation, support, account management, and field services, as well as optimization of the robotics solution to maximise customers' lifetime value. This Customer Success team is key to Locus Robotics' land and grow strategy. Locus has risen to the top of the AMR market as a result of this strategy.
Jasmine says, “Being an Asian woman in a male-dominated industry, there are times that being respected and accepted of any ideas/solutions can be a challenge. Knowledge, confidence, and executive presence are key to working in a male-dominated industry. One would need to hold her own in listening, understanding the customer business problems and be able to utilize knowledge, technical expertise, and soft skills (analytical, problem solving, great communication) to gain the trust and respect from the customers. This takes effort and grit by studying and learning the technologies (robotics and business applications) behind the solution as well as the industry, operational challenges to speak the language and have empathy and appreciation for what the customers are facing. Building great relationships with the customers by going above and beyond what they need increases trust and partnership. As the CCO of Locus Robotics, the motto of the CS team is built on making our customers successful and relationships are key. We are our customers' trusted advisors and long-term partners.”

Customer Success at Locus plays a significant role in the business's success.

In the short 5 years, the Customer Success organization has grown from a team of one in October 2016 to a team of 70 members by the end of 2021.
