Elevating the Role of the CMO

Marketing drives growth. It is the engine of the demand chain. It is marketing that CEOs need most, but respect least. Why? Because the CMO’s crucial role in driving growth has not been well demonstrated. MASB will change this. We will make marketing accountable by uniting the profession behind standards and principles which show how investment in marketing creates revenue and profit growth, and which CEOs, CFOs and boards will recognize as robust. With the transformation of marketing’s role, companies will unleash new sources of growth, enabling societies to prosper and individuals thrive. We call on all of you to join us.
