3 Things CMOs Must Consider When Leading Customer Experience

At least it should be.

But as important and as talked-about as CX is, there is a debate as to who should lead the charge—drive the CX bus, if you will. In my not-so-humble opinion, it should unequivocally be the CMO.

I realize I am dating myself here—there will be some out there who won’t have any idea who Rodney Dangerfield is, or why I am referencing him. For the uneducated, he was a famous stand up comedian whose legendary lament was, “I don’t get any respect.”
