The CIO-CMO couple is improbable, but a more and more common occurrence, as digital has pushed data and creativity together. Isobar US co-CEOs discuss the challenges.
In this second installment of ClickZ's interview with co-chief executives Geoff Cubitt and Jeff Maling from digital marketing agency Isobar, the two address the tricky issue of the improbable chief information officer-chief marketing officer couple. The challenge is just as new as it is huge, with digital bringing together data and creativity and thus forcing two opposites to work together hand in hand.
