ChurnZero announces second annual CSM Appreciation Week


Customer Success managers across the industry are invited to showcase their business skillsets, win cash prizes, and earn recognition in the CSM Awards this May.

Washington, D.C. – April 18, 2023 – ChurnZero, the platform and partner for Customer Success, has announced the second annual CSM Appreciation Week to recognize the dedication and skills of Customer Success managers (CSMs) at SaaS and subscription businesses everywhere. Held from May 8-12, this week of appreciation includes the industry-wide CSM Awards, which offer every CSM the opportunity to earn prizes and recognition for their work and creativity.

“This year more than ever, Customer Success managers deserve extra appreciation for their tenacity and resourcefulness in keeping customers, driving value, and growing revenue,” says You Mon Tsang, CEO and co-founder, ChurnZero. “They’re not just their customers’ coaches, consultants, and advisors; they’re also the engine driving the SaaS industry through the turbulence of 2023. Let’s celebrate their work, their impact, and their dedication in CSM Appreciation Week this May.”

From April 18 to May 1, CSMs are invited to submit examples of their work and ingenuity across five CSM Awards categories, each showcasing an essential tactical aspect or skill of Customer Success. On May 8, three finalists in each category will be named in a webinar hosted by a panel of Customer Success leaders and experts, followed by four days of public voting to decide the winners. Voters can vote multiple times: once in the webinar, and once per day from May 8 to May 11 on the CSM Appreciation Week website. The five winners, who will earn cash prizes of $500 each, will be revealed on Friday, May 12.

2023’s CSM Award categories are:

 – Best renewal communication: Demonstrate the writing skills that helped you get a renewal deal across the finish line. Presented by ChurnZero.

 – Best reengagement strategy: Share your proven ideas for getting a hard-to-reach customer re-engaged and back on track. Presented by Northpass.
