About Kristi Faltorusso

I’m a Customer Success Executive with experience in building, scaling, and transforming Customer Success organizations at hyper-growth B2B SaaS companies. Over the past decade, I've helped many companies redefine Customer Success resulting in increased retention, long-term revenue growth, and customer advocacy.I’ve lead Customer Success and Experience teams at companies like BrightEdge, Sisense, BetterCloud, and IntelliShift.

​I am currently the Chief Customer Officer at ClientSuccess, a leading Customer Success Management platform, which helps Customer Success teams across the globe manage their customer success programs. At ClientSuccess I manage the customer growth lifecycle, ensuring our customers maximize the value from the partnership.

 

I have been recognized by SuccessHACKER as a Top 25 Customer Success Influencer in 2020 and 2021, by SmartKarrot as a Top 50 Customer Success Influencer in 2021 and, by HigherLogic as a 2021 Engagement Expert.

Previously I was a digital marketing professional scaling various customer acquisition programs across companies such as Crain’s New York, The Knot Worldwide, United Business Media, and more. In 2007, I began teaching SEO and digital marketing as an Adjunct Professor at LIU Post and I hold a BFA in Public Relations from LIU Post. 

I've recently taken to running and ran my first half marathon in September 2021. I compare running to Customer Success as I believe there are so many similarities - It's simple, no one has to tell you how to run, you just run, but the further you run the harder it gets.
