On September 30, 2021, the website Ivy Exec published under executive “Advancing” an article I wrote on “CMO Employment Contract Tips to Protect You and Your Job”.
This new article is designed not only for C-level and senior executives, but even for many directors and mid-level executives, who currently are considering offers for the Chief Marketing Officer position but expect to soon receive such an executive job offer or who aspire to such an offer in the future.
As Chief Marketing Officer the executive may be expected to oversee all areas of a company’s overall promotion, branding, digital presence, advertising and sales strategy, as well as coordinating marketing efforts with the company’s product development, financial position and goals. My article mentions how responsibilities and authority of the CMO can vary by organization but often include most or all of these duties:
My article also discusses delineation of your duties, responsibilities, authority and reporting and including in your offer letter or employment contract key executive employment terms on which you rely to take the job.
Finally, but also importantly, my article next discusses what to seek in getting the right CMO Compensation Package, and concludes with a discussion of severance rights to enable you to protect the terms of your bargain reached with the company.

IvyExec hosts articles and webinars from experts in the career, leadership, and business spaces who wish to share their knowledge with our audience. In April 2021, I was invited to write for IvyExec since it seeks original content on the topics of career development, leadership, and business strategy as it applies to senior-level and C-Suite professionals. IvyExec blog posts and webinars are shared with its community of more than 2 million members on its website, in its newsletter, and on its social media channels. https://www.ivyexec.com/career-advice/write-for-us/
It is my hope that this article will be of benefit to VPs, directors and senior executives who have the opportunity to negotiate their first job offer to be Chief Marketing Officer or for those who are already CMOs and seek more appropriate terms in their next job offer. My article suggests terms and approaches to each of you and thus I hope will provide you a benefit in your negotiations.

Duty of “Good Faith and Fair Dealing” Ensures Your Executive Compensation is not Taken Away from You
On September 2, 2021, CEOWorld magazine published an article I wrote on “Duty of “Good Faith and Fair Dealing” Ensures Your Executive Compensation is not Taken Away from You”.
This new article is designed for CEOs, C-level and senior executives, who at some point face employment termination for no good reason when you are close to making a big score for what you have achieved for the company.
My article discusses an important duty or implied covenant in the law that provides that even if you are an employee “at will”, with no contractual rights, you might still have a valid enforceable claim against your employer to be made whole — to be paid what you are due. The article discusses landmark state Supreme Court cases from three different states around the USA where plaintiffs have been made whole because of the defendant’s breach of the duty of “Good Faith and Fair Dealing”. In doing so, courts consider where the plaintiff suffered harm because he or she was prevented from receiving the benefits of their agreement, including these bad faith actions by a defendant:

This was my 35th article published in CEOWORLD since 2016. Previously, the editor advised that I can use “Featured in the CEOWORLD magazine” and the CEOWORLD “Logo” on my website and add CEOWORLD magazine in my LinkedIn profile’s “Experience Section” as an “Opinion Columnist.” and authority in the field.
On its own initiative, CEOWORLD magazine created on their website a library of Robert Adelson published articles. You can peruse this library and/or read as many of my 34 published articles as you wish. See https://ceoworld.biz/author/robert-adelson/
With more than 12.4+ million-page views, CEOWORLD magazine is the world’s leading business magazine written strictly for CEOs, CFOs, CIOs, senior management executives, business leaders, and high net worth individuals worldwide.
It is my hope that this article will be of benefit to CEOs, C-level and senior executives who, at some point in your career, might be at the point of receiving a major benefit in executive compensation, equity vesting or payout, only to be deprived or threatened with loss of that benefit earned, by employment termination without cause or reason or other arbitrary act by the employer. The goal of this article is to let you know that if that happens to you or a colleague of yours, there may be a basis to seek redress for your loss or potential loss. Feel free to share this article. If you or any colleague of yours has a need in this area, please do reach out to me.
