Chief Data Officer JOBS Update (Q4 2014)

Did you know that the Harvard Business Review named the data scientist as “the sexiest job of the 21st century,” and that research firm Gartner predicted that 25% of organizations will have a Chief Data Officer by 2017?

I can’t comment on the opinion expressed by HBR, but judging by the pipeline of open Chief Data Officer roles (see below), Gartner’s forecast might actually be on target.

So, welcome to the inaugural issue of our CDO JOBS Update for Chief DATA Officers!

In addition to the ten open Chief Data Officer slots mentioned below, our career page also lists dozens of open digital jobs, including four Chief Digital Officer jobs in Australia, Sweden, Switzerland, and England; and six SVP positions at Citi (x2), IPG, Turner, Hearst, and Oglivy.

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:

“The Chief Digital Officer Summit was engaging as much as it was informative. Bringing these incredible leaders together in one place and for one day speaks to David Mathison’s extensive network, his ability to understand the needs of his clients, and to be ahead of the curve in this important space. It was a great use of my time, and I learned more than I ever thought I would. Great networking as well!”

Sandy Soto
VP Executive Talent Acquisition

“The Chief Digital Officer Summit was a very relevant topic for today’s times. I was impressed by the caliber and diversity of the panel speakers, all of whom had something unique and valuable to offer. A great opportunity to learn from the best.”

Amanda Jones-Orengo
Towers Watson

“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 Chief Digital Officer Summit was outstanding. Why? Candid panels with top players in the digital community. Splendid break-time conversations. And, savvy facilitation, Mathison Style.”

Margaret Molloy
Chief Marketing Officer
