A fireside chat featuring speakers from Ciena, Splunk, Protegrity, and Macro

No executive role has seen more change and growth in responsibility than the Chief Marketing Officer (CMO). Managing the brand, growth agenda and the customer experience can be daunting. CMOs need support—like never before.

These expanded responsibilities have given rise to the new role of Marketing Chief of Staff (CoS).

Why are companies like Pepsi, Cisco, and LinkedIn employing this new role? The Marketing Chief of Staff bridges the gap between strategy and execution, forming the “connective tissue” between the office of the CMO and cross-departmental go-to-market teams.
