Fractional Chief Marketing Officer

What is a Chief Marketing Officer (CMO)?

A CMO, or Chief Marketing Officer, is a senior executive responsible for creating and executing a company’s marketing strategies to drive the organisation towards its goals, which are often revenue, headcount, brand, customer and sales oriented. The CMO often leads market research, brand development, promotion and advertising, communications, programme management, customer engagement and sales enablement to drive business growth and ensure the company’s brand and value propositions remain relevant and resonant. In the digital landscape, the CMO leverages data analytics, social media, websites and online platforms to communicate the company’s messages to its target markets and tools such as customer relationship management (CRM) to drive engagement with customers.
