Incredibly, these numbers have already surpassed all of 2014, when six CDOs became CEO and two became Directors; and matched the entirety of 2013, when six CDOs became CEO and 3 were elevated to Director.
This trend is so important, and so many digital leaders are being elevated to the top spot, that we’ve created a page dedicated to tracking those who’ve made the transition.
Want to know who made the move, or how to make the transition yourself?
