INAP and SmartBear Software VPs Join Monetize! Silicon Valley Line-Up

VP’s TJ Waldorf of INAP and Jennifer Mahoney of SmartBear Software to speak at Monetize! Silicon Valley, the west coast’s premier Net Promoter® conference

August 28th, Boston, MA—After the success of Monetize! Boston, CustomerGauge, the leading SaaS provider of Monetized Net Promoter solutions, is taking their retention message to the heart of Silicon Valley.

However, they aren’t going it alone. In addition to being joined by former CEO of Black Duck, Lou Shipley, who participated in the agenda at Monetize! Boston, CustomerGauge has added a number of new heavy hitters from the technology space to their Monetize! Silicon Valley event:

When it comes to hosting an event—CustomerGauge says “leave it to the locals.” Silicon Valley pundit Robert X. Cringely was one of the first 100 employees at Adobe Systems, Apple, and Cisco. For the last 30+ years, he has been writing about the Valley for InfoWorld, Forbes, Inc., and Worth magazine. And now, he’s this year’s host at Monetize! Silicon Valley.

In addition to this Silicon Valley veteran, CustomerGauge also welcomes two experts at the forefront of retention and NPS® in the tech space. First up, TJ Waldorf, VP of Global Marketing at Internap Corporation (NASDAQ:INAP, news, filings). Prior to his role at the IT powerhouse, TJ was instrumental in managing the NPS and customer retention program at SingleHop. This September, he’ll share the importance of tactics to minimize churn and retain customers—using his own experience now and during the acquisition of SingleHop by INAP.

Finally, CustomerGauge welcomes a leader in the technology sector and a topic close to the industry’s heart: VP of Customer Success at SmartBear, Jennifer Mahoney. While at SmartBear, Jennifer has grown the Customer Success team into a global organization, with staff in Boston, Galway and Melbourne. At Monetize! Jennifer will discuss how she helped SmartBear develop a robust and profitable customer retention program by concentrating on customer satisfaction.
