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.

A week ago, on March 31, 2020, CEOWorld magazine published an article I wrote on “Executive Employment Agreement – An Overview for the Newly-Minted CEO or C-Suite Executive”. The magazine advised me that I can use “Featured in the CEOWOLRD magazine” and the CEOWORLD “Logo” on my website.
This was my 26th article published in CEOWORLD. Earlier this year, the editor advised that I can add CEOWORLD magazine in my LinkedIn profile’s “Experience Section” as an “Opinion Columnist.” and authority in the field.
