Gone are the days of working in isolation. Chief Marketing Officers (CMOs) are rapidly realising that their roles have extended way beyond advertising silos to true business integration impacting on bottom line results. And this is a good thing. Research shows that CMOs' shelf lives are increasing each year, most likely because of the greater influence they have within businesses. It's also not surprising that those CMOs who grasp the impact a sound digital marketing strategy can have on a business and execute it, can look forward to longer tenures with more influence at the executive roundtable.
