The new role was created to enhance the customer experience across Prudential's US businesses.

Prudential Financial has announced the appointment of Naveen Agarwal to the position of VP and chief customer officer. In this newly created role, Agarwal will be responsible for improving Prudential’s customer experience strategy across its US businesses. 

When he joins Prudential in December, Agarwal will begin to lead the development of a broad customer experience strategy designed to provide consistently meaningful engagement. His responsibilities will also include developing and launching the digital strategy across US businesses. Agarwal will report to Stephen Pelletier, Prudential’s EVP and COO.
