ChurnZero Appoints Chief Financial Officer as the Company Continues on an Impressive Growth Trajectory
The Customer Success platform company doubled revenue in 2021
ChurnZero, a leading Customer Success platform, announced today it has expanded its leadership team with the appointment of Aaron Levine as its chief financial officer. This executive addition reflects ChurnZero’s continued momentum as Customer Success becomes the central hub for increasing net revenue retention (NRR) in SaaS businesses.
A seasoned financial executive and CFO with extensive experience in both publicly traded and private technology companies, Levine most recently served as the CFO of EveryAction, Inc., which was acquired by Apax Partners in 2021 in a combined $2 billion transaction.
“I’m proud to join this growing business because I know firsthand the significant impact it has on the business,” said Levine, who saw the potential of the ChurnZero platform back in 2015 and implemented it at every company he has helped lead since. “As the executive responsible for my company’s financial health, driving customer growth is paramount to me and all CFOs. ChurnZero has been the cornerstone in helping my previous businesses improve net revenue retention.”
“For subscription businesses, NRR is the metric to rule them all,” said You Mon Tsang, ChurnZero CEO and co-founder. “Aaron can help us continue to innovate as we enter our next phase of growth to ensure that our platform enables our customers to grow customer relationships and revenue.”
