ChurnZero announces 2022 ChurnHero Awards winners


Third annual ChurnHero Awards celebrate Customer Success teams who use ChurnZero to exemplify and evolve CS best practices with remarkable results. 

Washington, Dec 15, 2022ChurnZero, the leading Customer Success platform and partner, has recognized five remarkable Customer Success (CS) teams with 2022 ChurnHero Awards. For the third year running, the ChurnHero Awards celebrate CS teams who use ChurnZero’s platform to deliver outstanding business results, exemplifying the power of CS as a revenue-driving growth engine for SaaS and subscription businesses.  

This year’s awards recognize ChurnHeroes across five categories, each representing a fundamental business goal of CS teams: onboarding, adoption, renewals and expansion, customer advocacy, and innovation. Entrants submitted a case study of their work to be carefully assessed by a ChurnZero panel led by Chief Customer Officer Alli Tiscornia. Entries were judged not just on their results, but on criteria including innovation, customer-centricity, and data-driven decision making.   

“As a dedicated partner to Customer Success teams worldwide, we’re always excited to celebrate their wins—and yet, there’s more to the ChurnHero Awards than results alone,” said Alli Tiscornia, Chief Customer Officer, ChurnZero. “Customer Success is a new and evolving business discipline with best practices that are still forming. ChurnHero Awards recognize teams who exemplify and build on current best practices in ways that other CS teams should pay attention to. We’re proud to power their accomplishments with our platform, and to be a part of their success.”  

This year’s ChurnHero categories and winners are:
