Windermere Executive Joins Kinēsis Advisory Board
Seattle, WA. May, 2002 Kinēsis, a Seattle-based firm that provides companies with customized Customer Experience Management™ (CEM) strategies, has added Jeanne Grainger, president of Windermere Services Southwest Inc., to its Advisory Board.
In her 12-year real estate career with Windermere, Grainger has successfully developed the company's brand and implemented it in several new market areas. As president of Windermere Services Southwest, Grainger is responsible for identifying and recruiting owners, and providing agents and managers with advanced real estate technology systems and Windermere's education and marketing programs.
"The strength of our advisory board lies in the representation of experience from across several service-focused industries," said Kathy Harper, Kinēsis managing member. "Jeanne brings a strong real estate background, and her understanding of the correlation between employee and customer satisfaction is directly in line with ours - they're equally valuable, you can't have one without the other."
Since joining Windermere in 1988, Grainger has served as director of communications, executive vice president, co-president and as an executive management team member.
"Satisfied customers are a result of interactions with confident, knowledgeable and empowered employees. Nowhere is this more evident than in the real estate industry," said Grainger. "Kinēsis' approach focuses on the real estate agent as much as the customer, providing them with the tools, training and ongoing feedback needed to succeed."
Grainger has also represented Windermere in two national real estate networking groups, The Realty Alliance and The Vision Group. She was also a member of the inaugural advisory board for Microsoft's HomeAdvisor Web site.
