Global Demand for Chief Digital Officers and Chief Data Officers Continues at a Torrid Pace

In stark contrast to the recent sluggish jobs report from the U.S. Department of Labor, demand for Chief Digital Officers and Chief Data Officers (CDOs) still grows globally at a frantic rate.

CDO GrowthAs projected in our 2014 CDO Talent Map, the CDO Club forecasts that the number of Chief Digital Officers will double again this year, growing to some 1,000 CDOs by the end of 2014.

The CDO Club also projects that there will be more than 200 Chief Data Officers by year end.

In a repeat of last year, even the normally “slow” summer months of July and August have produced CDO hires at leading global corporate, nonprofit, and government agencies, as cited below.

And, just like last year, these recent hires also fit the profile of the “typical” Chief Digital Officer.

Overall, CDOs are well-seasoned, veteran, professional leaders and business builders with digital DNA who have P&L responsibility and backgrounds in General Management, Corporate and Business Development, “entrepreneurial disruption,” and the ability to get buy-in from multiple stakeholders across company silos.

Of course, optimal skill-sets will differ widely by sector.

The CDO Summit is the “must-attend” digital event of the year. The 2013 and 2014 CDO Summits received stellar endorsements from dozens of speakers and attendees alike:

“David, here’s a handy C^3 test for conference value: Did I learn at least three new perspectives? Check. Did I meet at least three interesting people? Check. Did I take back at least three relevant pieces of news I can use? Check. Flying colors for the Chief Digital Officer Summit 2013! Thank you so much, and yes, I’d be very pleased to participate next year!”
