Are you looking to hire – or become – a Chief Digital Officer?


NEW YORK, NY September 3, 2013: Today, Chief Marketing Officer Lisa Arthur posted an article on entitled, “Why You Should Consider Hiring A Chief Digital Officer, And Why Now,” that explained why this position is so critical for many organizations right now:

CDOs are digital-savvy, business-driven leaders who have what it takes to transform traditional businesses into data-driven companies. They combine marketing and management experience with technical know-how and strategic vision to align and improve business operations across the enterprise.  I believe this type of broader, enterprise-wide data management scope has become the “mandate of our era.” And given that big data is here to stay – and getting bigger – your company needs a C-level position…

We completely agree, and that is why Big Data, Insights and Analytics will be the theme of the next Chief Digital Officer Summit (April 22-3, 2014 at Time Warner in NYC).

While the CDO Summit is the perfect place for Chief Digital Officers to refine their skills, present their findings, network with other CDOs, and explore new opportunities, its also great for CMOs, CIOs, CEOs, Board Directors, hiring managers, and those who want to become CDOs.

Along with keynotes from industry leaders, vertical industry-sector panels, and workshops featuring the tools you need to be even more successful, we’re also including a panel with digitally-savvy Chief Marketing Officers.

Another panel will feature Chief Digital Officers who have become CEOs and Board members. According to our Chief Digital Officer Talent Map 2013, since January 1, 2013:

  • 200 new Chief Digital Officers have been hired globally
  • Five Chief Digital Officers became CEOs
  • Four Chief Digital Officers became Board Directors

This is an upwardly mobile group!

Eventbrite - Chief Digital Officer Summit 2014

The CDO Summit is the “must-attend” digital event of the year. But don’t take our word for it – last year’s CDO Summit received stellar endorsements from dozens of speakers and attendees alike:

“Sometimes a conference comes along that hits the trifecta – hot topic, high-caliber attendees, and stellar location. The first Chief Digital Officer Summit reached that mark with ease, and I look forward to attending the next one.”

Eric Hellweg
Managing Director, Digital Strategy/Editorial Director
Harvard Business Review

“The best-organized conference I’ve been to in years, the Chief Digital Officer Summit was packed with smart people and smart ideas. Leave ‘em wanting more is what they say, and David Mathison and his team delivered. Now, we want more!”

Professor Sree Sreenivasan
Chief Digital Officer
The Metropolitan Museum of Art

“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!”

Perry Hewitt
Chief Digital Officer
Harvard University

“Congratulations on an exceptional first CDO Summit. I truly enjoyed all the panel discussions as well as the intimate environment where I was able to meet such amazing people. The conversations were very enlightening and touched on all the challenges my team and I face on a technology, content, and culture front. I look forward to participating next year.”
