This year marks the 100th anniversary of Electrolux, and it’s a time when the consumer is more empowered than ever, global competition keeps everyone on their toes, and innovation is at the heart of it all. To play in this arena, Electrolux constantly needs to reinvent itself.

To do this, we’ve brought together thought leaders in product, marketing, design, ownership and digital to form the new Consumer Experience Organization (CXO). We’re coming together as one team to channel our creativity into storytelling, outstanding user experiences and a strong innovation roadmap for the future.
