Jeff JonesChief Marketing Officerat Target“ want to give all of us the best chance of success by I having assignments that play to the sweet spot of what those agencies do. I’m not willing to commit to [that roster being] two agencies or four or 50. We want to have flexibility.”
Clark KokichChairmanat Razorfish“ hat you need more than expertise is curiosity, someone W who’s interested in what’s happening, loves change, and wants to develop ideas and drive change. If you’re not one of those people, you’re going to hate what’s going on in marketing and you won’t be effective. I have friends who have told me they’re just trying to hang on before people realize they don’t know what they’re doing. But I don’t think you can fake it another five years. You’re just not relevant if you’re fighting the reality of what’s happening.”
