I know this might have been probably asked before but through out the net I didn't get a single proper working post to my problem. Hence thought of asking it myself.

I have created a custom field "Company Name" for my Customer's registration form. Its showing on registration form as well as customers grid at admin side. I would also like to see this field in "Customer's Dashboard" and "Edit Account Information" Section at front-end.

I have followed the below solution, but I didn't get it. I am a beginner in Magento 2.0 https://magento.stackexchange.com/a/125367/45181

Here is my source code:


namespace MyModules\CustomerMarketingFields\Setup;
use Magento\Framework\Module\Setup\Migration;
use Magento\Framework\Setup\InstallDataInterface;
use Magento\Framework\Setup\ModuleContextInterface;
use Magento\Framework\Setup\ModuleDataSetupInterface;
class InstallData implements InstallDataInterface
     * Customer setup factory
     * @var \Magento\Customer\Setup\CustomerSetupFactory
    private $customerSetupFactory;
     * Init
     * @param \Magento\Customer\Setup\CustomerSetupFactory $customerSetupFactory
    public function __construct(\Magento\Customer\Setup\CustomerSetupFactory $customerSetupFactory)
        $this->customerSetupFactory = $customerSetupFactory;
     * Installs DB schema for a module
     * @param ModuleDataSetupInterface $setup
     * @param ModuleContextInterface $context
     * @return void
    public function install(ModuleDataSetupInterface $setup, ModuleContextInterface $context)
        $installer = $setup;
        $customerSetup = $this->customerSetupFactory->create(['setup' => $setup]);
        $entityTypeId = $customerSetup->getEntityTypeId(\Magento\Customer\Model\Customer::ENTITY);

    $customerSetup->addAttribute(\Magento\Customer\Model\Customer::ENTITY, "company_name",  array(
        "type"     => "varchar",
        "backend"  => "",
        "label"    => "Company Name",
        "input"    => "text",
        "source"   => '',
        "visible"  => true,
        "required" => true,
        "default" => "",
        "frontend" => "",
        "unique"     => false,
        "note"       => "",
        "is_used_in_grid" => true,
        "is_visible_in_grid" => true,
        "is_filterable_in_grid" => true,
        "is_searchable_in_grid" => true


    $regulation   = $customerSetup->getAttribute(\Magento\Customer\Model\Customer::ENTITY, "company_name");

    $regulation = $customerSetup->getEavConfig()->getAttribute(\Magento\Customer\Model\Customer::ENTITY, 'company_name');
    $regulation->setData("used_in_forms", $used_in_forms)
        ->setData("is_used_for_customer_segment", true)
        ->setData("is_system", 0)
        ->setData("is_user_defined", 1)
        ->setData("is_visible", 1)
        ->setData("sort_order", 100);

        <block class="Magento\Framework\View\Element\Template" name="my_form_additional_info_customer" template="MyModules_CustomerMarketingFields::additionalinfocustomer.phtml"/>


<fieldset class="fieldset create account" data-hasrequired="<?php /* @escapeNotVerified */
echo __('* Required Fields') ?>">
    <legend class="legend"><span><?php /* @escapeNotVerified */
            echo __('Additional Information') ?></span></legend>

<div class="field company_name required">
    <label for="company_name" class="label"><span><?php /* @escapeNotVerified */
            echo __('Company Name') ?></span></label>
    <div class="control">
        <input type="text" name="company_name" id="company_name" title="<?php /* @escapeNotVerified */
        echo __('Company Name') ?>" class="input-text" data-validate="{required:true}">

Please I would really appreciate if some one can tell me how to do this.

Thanks in advance.

I found the solution, finally

Step 1: Create configuration files for Customer's Dashboard and Edit My Account pages.

Step 2: Use the below code in your phtml files to get the customer custom attributes .

$objm = \Magento\Framework\App\ObjectManager::getInstance();
 $customerSession = $objm->get('Magento\Customer\Model\Session');
 echo   $customerSession->getCustomer()->getCustomAttribute();
 // use your custom attribute name to get the value.
