Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) November 04, 2011
Market dynamics, digital and social media, technology and other factors have been radically transforming the expectations and organizational needs from the Chief Marketing Officer and the Marketing function at an accelerating pace. From the C-suite to the customer, the ‘value’ that needs to be delivered to commercially accelerate growth is changing like never before.
While the tenure of the CMO has been increasing in recent years according to Spencer Stuart's annual CMO tenure survey, gaps remain in terms of what CEOs and the Board of Directors expect from their CMOs. Several recent global CMO studies illuminate how the CMO role is changing and will need to evolve to address these transformative dynamics.
Steven Cook, Founder of Fortune CMO, will lead a panel of 3 CMOs at the Marketing 360 Exchange on November 6, 2011 to discuss this critical topic. This Panel will review implications and recommendations to keep the Marketing function relevant and connected in the C-suite, across the Company, and with customers.
Steven Cook will share his thoughts on why the CMO role needs to evolve to a higher purpose role called 'CGAR5', which stands for 'Commercial Growth Accelerator'. The R5 focuses on the key areas that a 21st Century brand builder should be leading across their Company:
- Relevant re-imagining
- Revenues & results
