I want to research companies who value UX so much that they have their own executive arm within the company.

I've found these companies so far:

  • Wells Fargo
  • Yahoo
  • Intuit
  • Google
  • TiVo
  • Palm
  • Ebay
  • SAP

I also wonder if anyone working for these companies can speak to UX's role within the organization.

Turns out LinkedIn was the most valuable tool for researching. You can see the over 500 companies or just read about eh 4 which were HUGE successful co's with a vp ux here:

I also found a lot of director-level UX people (like facebook) I may do another post about just directors.
