A Chief Marketing Officer (CMO) is a corporate executive responsible for marketing and branding activities in a company. The CMO leads brand management, marketing communications (including advertising, promotions and public relations), market research, product marketing, distribution channel management, pricing, customer success, and customer service.

Why is having a Chief Marketing Officer important?

Success in communicating your products and services to the public requires having a cohesive and unified approach to all aspects of marketing. This includes generating leads, customer loyalty, brand recognition, and ultimately company growth.

For growing companies, it is especially important that all areas of marketing are in tune with company brand, voice, image, and values. For these companies, they need someone in charge of all marketing communications, such as advertising and public relations.
