Officer to CEO Career Path?
For fast-growing companies,
the Chief Digital Officer is
emerging as the new “it”
position. Gartner predicts that
25% of businesses will have a
CDO by 2015. Gartner

Here’s why
70% of all U.S. car buyers research new and used car
purchases online, an average of 18 hours per person
(source: Polk).
90% of people trust recommendations over advertising

Digital marketing has created a survival of the fittest & fastest business
model change across all industries.
Professional services firms are losing clients to competitors who out-network
them via LinkedIn.
Traditional manufacturers who used to rely upon distributors to handle
customer communication, now have to deal directly with online customer
complaints and with their competitors talking directly to consumers.
Retail businesses have to fight for new visits every single day, every single
minute on search engines and in social media.
B2B, B2C industries alike have to fundamentally change how they interact
with customers because of digital marketing.

Companies who reach potential customers faster,
offer a better digital customer experience, who
communicate more quickly with customers, are
winning the sales race.
And that is driving a business model change globally.
More than ever before, the CMO and CIO have to
work together – but they have no historical
precedent for this.

“Unlike CIOs, CDOs aren’t concerned with

purchase, delivery and service. As a result, they
have a much more complete picture of the

“CDO candidates should be familiar with web,

required, the ability to manage developers & ask
the right questions is a minimum requirement.”
