Chief Digital Officer JOBS Update (Q4 2014)

Welcome to the inaugural issue of our Chief Digital Officer JOBS Update.

The Chief Digital Officer JOBS Update will include the following features:

  • Open CDO and other C-level digital and data positions
  • New CDO appointments for the previous quarter
  • CDO ‘Movers and Shakers’
  • CDOs ‘In the News’

So without further ado, let’s get to it.

What a great way to end 2014 – more CDOs were hired in Q4 2014 than in all of 2013 – which is why it took us so long to compile this post!

According to Gartner VP Dave Aron, new CDO hires are “springing up faster than we can count them,” and we wholeheartedly agree.

Here’s a look at just a few of the open posts we’ve listed on our dedicated career page:


UK Cabinet Office
City of Gold Coast


In addition to the four Chief Digital Officer slots mentioned above, our career page now lists dozens of open jobs: five SVP positions (at Citi, IPG, Turner, and Oglivy); and ten Chief Data Officer posts (at the US Department of the Treasury, US Department of Commerce, Dow Jones, Credit Suisse, Citizens Financial, RBS, Kennesaw State University, and Barclays, among others).

We are also working on these for our Executive Search Partner Network: Head of Insights and Marketing Analytics; Vice President of Digital Ops; and Head of Web Strategy (“CDO Light”).

Thanks also to CDO Club member Kieran O’Hea for alerting us to a new post – the Professor and PwC Chair in Digital Economy at Queensland University of Technology.

If you know of any qualified candidates, or have other open C-level digital positions, send them over so we can post them. Who knows? It may help one of your fellow CDO colleagues.

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
