Client Success Manager
The Client Success Manager (CSM) manages the day-to-day relationship with clients and maintains a holistic, data-driven view of their overall experience with every team, product and service at Synthesis. Interfacing with clients, the CSM builds relationships across the client organization and leverages these to improve product usage and entrenchment, secure sales references, identify revenue opportunities, and ensure overall satisfaction is achieved and maintained over the long term.
