10 Years of Women Who Rock in Marketing – CMO Edition 2019

50 Women CMOs 2019

50 Women CMOs In recent years
headlines like ‘Men
twice as likely to be CMOs than women
’ were pretty common. If
you’ve worked in marketing for any length of time, you know that
the role of CMO is already associated with
high demands and turnover
. Some might argue that women in CMO
roles face an even greater challenge given their
underrepresentation in marketing leadership
despite the
marketing industry being overwhelmingly female. While women are
underrepresented as CMOs, there’s
research that shows
women in CMO roles are paid better (on
average) than their male peers. Even more promising is that
half the marketing leadership hires in the first six months of 2019
were women
“. You might be wondering why am I writing about
women marketing? For the past 10 years I have been tracking rising
stars in the marketing world and recognizing social influencers in
the marketing space with an annual list: Women Who Rock in
. That list started in 2010 when I was recognized
on a list of social media rockstars with few if any women on it.
That seemed strange. So, I made
a list of 25 women I knew in marketing
that were rocking social
media. Every year since, a list has been published recognizing
women in marketing, inspiring many reactions, conversations and
hopefully, even change. While there have been a few variations on
selection, sorting and author, (Ashley Zeckman published the list
for 2 years), for the most part every year I’ve asked the previous
year’s honorees to nominate a peer. Nominees were reviewed, sorted
and the list published. My goal for these lists is to shine a light
on talent and create awareness amongst marketers. It has been
incredibly satisfying to learn about the impressive capabilities
and accomplishments of these marketing leaders.
Last year we had
a CMO who was also an opera singer, a social
media executive who once worked with Mother Theresa and an Olympic
athlete who created a program to inspire thousands of young people.
It has been great to see that many of the women have been
recognized by their companies and industry with several having
advanced over the years to take on senior marketing roles like
Chief Marketing Officer. 50 Women CMOs 2019 To honor women
in senior marketing roles for this 10th anniversary of
Women Who Rock in Marketing
, the following list features
50 women in CMO roles making a difference and creating impact. They
are leaders who represent the future of marketing and I highly
recommend you follow them. (Note: This is not a comprehensive list
and the list is alphabetical) Before we get to the list,
some special recognition:
One woman that has been
instrumental in the past few years at creating one of the most
robust CMO communities and collections of content for senior
marketing executives is Nadine
@NadineDietz. Her company CMO Moves and podcast were
acquired by Adweek and represents a cornucopia
of knowledge for CMOs
and inspiring CMOs alike. Thank you
Nadine for your tremendous contribution and community building! 50

@danokwan CMO at SAP Ariba /in/tifenndano/ Thank
you to Lane
  for providing some research help with this list.
We can do better. Despite gains in hiring and
compensation of women in senior marketing roles, the
ANA CMO scorecard reports
that “companies remain woefully
behind when it comes to promoting people of color to top marketing
jobs. Only 13 percent of the top jobs are held by people of color,
including 5 percent Asian, 5 percent Hispanic/Latin and 3 percent
black.” There is some progress but much more to be made. Whatever
companies can do to remove barriers to marketing talent rising into
leadership positions is an investment in the success of the
business. I am thankful for the incredible contributions this group
of marketing leaders has made to move our industry forward and am
optimistic about continued momentum into the new year. Who
would you add to this list for 2020?
