Mark was instrumental in helping us build the foundation of our Customer Success organization. With his guidance and expertise, we were able to transform from a renewals team into a proactive CS team that makes informed decisions and actions based on customer health data. He assisted in leading the implementation of our Customer Success automation platform, which included our C-Sat surveys NPS, onboarding playbooks, early warning systems for at-risk customers and mapping the entire customer journey. I would recommend him to any organization either building a customer success org from the ground up or those that are established but looking for ways to improve.

You rarely come across an executive that has the competency and skills to quickly analyze the current state of the business and then be able to put together a concise action plan and then go execute to it. In the world of SaaS customer success, I don’t think there is a more knowledgeable, visionary thought leader than Mark. He is on the cutting edge of defining the next generation of customer success best practices. Mark is exceptional in customer situations and can translate customer requirements across the organization in an actionable way. His ability to recruit and develop his people is second to none. Whether is be the CSM or CS team, they both run like clockwork under Mark’s guidance. We have worked together twice, and I would welcome the opportunity to do it again.

Customer Success as a function has come into its own as a strategic necessity for tech companies. Leaders of this function tend to be either enthusiastic but inexperienced, or experienced in other related functions like support or professional services. Mark is a rare leader. He’s passionate and experienced, capable of defining a vision for a Customer Success organization and executing on bringing a high-functioning team to fruition. All of this means he’s been a valuable advisor to my company and a source of continued inspiration.
