Recruiting for any C-Suite role is no easy task, and the Chief Marketing Officer (CMO) position is no exception. Several challenges make finding the right CMO a complex challenge, the first of which is finding a candidate who can keep abreast with the constantly-evolving digital landscape. Digital marketing techniques, SEO algorithms, social media platforms, and data analytics tools change rapidly, demanding a CMO who possesses not only current expertise but also the ability to anticipate future digital trends.
