About the Sally Awards: In 2013, Gainsight published a children’s book titled “Sally and the Churnbot” where the protagonist “Sally,” the Customer Success Superhero, saves the world from the evil customer-stealing “Churnbot” villain. The character became synonymous with the spirit of the Customer Success Manager role — to protect companies from unexpected churn while working with customers to drive outcomes for their own businesses. The awards were named after the hero character and are produced every year for companies who personify the spirit of Sally and her Customer Success mission.
