This book profiles marketeers and CMOs from leading brands such as Banana Republic, Generali, Gucci, Jägermeister, Oatly, smart, Tony’s Chocolonely, Unilever, Zalando and many more. What are their views, how do they understand marketing and their role, and what profile will the CMO need in the future to meet the challenges of marketing today?
