  • Lead by example and promote the importance of creating trusted advisor relationships with Customers’ executive sponsors that enable and lead to strategic partnerships and align with our business and strategy.
  • Design retention strategies, based on company strategy, to reduce churn and to improve long-term account expansion across SMB and Mid-Market customer segments.
  • Develop a culture of customer obsession and accountability, striving for nothing less than 100% customer satisfaction and retention.
