Marketing & Sales

The Chief Marketing Officer is the fastest-changing and most unique role in the C-suite. CMOs are the nexus between organizations and customers at a time when virtually every industry — from consumer to tech to health care and industrial — is becoming customer-centric and the velocity of change continues to accelerate. The CMO leads brand dialogue and inspires internal and external clients while also driving the increasingly important discipline of performance marketing. He or she must also address nearly any commercial challenge, including digital and data disruption, sales, innovation, and the creation of entirely new customer experiences, while also serving as the primary conduit to customers demanding new methods of engagement. To be successful, today’s CMO must excel in cross-functional partnerships and understand the entire value chain of the business. It is an entirely new leadership role.
