Starbucks CDO Adam Brotman Named President of J.Crew
Chief DATA Officer JOBS Update for January 2018

Onward and Upward: Congratulations to Starbucks Adam Brotman!

We are excited to inform our CDO Community that Adam Brotman will be leaving Starbucks after nine years to join J.Crew as President and Chief Experience Officer, reporting to new CEO Jim Brett.

Brotman joined Starbucks as Chief Digital Officer in April 2009, where he helped digitally transform the Seattle coffee giant, and made the company a leader in mobile payments. 

In 2014, his team launched Starbucks’ popular “mobile order and pay” smartphone feature, which now accounts for 11% of total transactions at Starbucks-owned stores. His team also developed the payment feature inside the Starbucks mobile app. According to Starbucks, last year 30% of in-store transactions were completed via mobile payments.

In May of 2014, Brotman was appointed to Neiman Marcus Group’s Board of Directors, which put him into the CDO Club “
Hall of Fame.

The CDO Club Hall of Fame features more than 100 CDOs who have became CEO/President or Board Director/Non-Executive Director since 2011.

With this new appointment as President of J.Crew, Brotman earns a spot in the CDO Club Hall of Fame for a second time!

J.Crew was wise to appoint Mr. Brotman as President:
As pointed out in McKinsey’s December 2017 report, Why digital transformation is now on the CEO’s shoulders, “digital transformation is everywhere on the agendas of corporate boards and has risen to the top of CEOs’ strategic plans. What I’m seeing now is that, almost invariably, global corporate transformations are initiated and propelled by the CEO.

The threat is existential. For boards, if this isn’t on your agenda, then you’ve got the wrong agenda. If your CEO isn’t talking about how to ensure the survival of the enterprise amid digital disruption, well, maybe you’ve got the wrong person in the job. This may sound extreme, but it’s not
In 2015, in recognition of his many accomplishments, the CDO Club named Brotman U.S. Chief Digital Officer of the Year.

Congratulations Adam! We can’t wait to see what you have in store for J.Crew.
