Happy Anniversary, CDO Club:
50% Discount off Annual Memberships!

Seven years ago, David Mathison observed that Chief Digital Officer hires were ramping up dramatically, and garnering lucrative salaries at some of the world’s most prestigious organizations.

Yet no one was addressing the rapid growth of this important new title:
  • Analysts: Forrester and Gartner did not cover CDOs or Digital Transformation;
  • Consultants: Accenture, Capgemini, Deloitte, McKinsey, EY, KPMG and PwC had yet to address the need or opportunity;
  • Executive search firms: Spencer Stuart, Egon Zender, Russell Reynolds, Korn Ferry and others did not have practice areas dedicated to digital nor data.
On December 7, 2011 at the Harvard Club in New York City, after a year of extensive research on the topic, CDO Club founder David Mathison was invited to present his findings at an exclusive meeting of leading Chief Human Resource Officers (CHRO’s) and talent managers.

Two years later on February 28, 2013, at the inaugural NYC CDO Summit, Mathison published his findings in the “Chief Digital Officer Talent Map,” the first-ever report dedicated to CDOs. The report covered key demographic data, new hires, compensation, career path, reporting structures, and open jobs.

Since that time, Chief Digital Officer hires have doubled every year, and Chief Data Officer hires quintupled last year alone. 

The field now evolves so rapidly that an annual report is no longer sufficient.

As such, in 2014 we created monthly CDO JOBS Updates to keep analysts, the press, consultants, search firms, and most importantly, our CDO Club members up-to-date. 

Next week we will publish our 2016 year-end CDO JOBS Update, a cumulative look the entire year in review. This is a report you will not want to miss! 

In celebration of our anniversary, we are offering a limited-time 50% discount off annual CDO Club memberships, which include the monthly CDO JOBS Updates. 

This offer ends on Monday December 12, so be sure to subscribe today:
PLATINUM annual membership is normally $1,495; discount is only $747.50!
GOLD annual membership is normally $995; discount is only $497.50!

3. CDO Talent Map: First published in 2013, the CDO Talent Map was the first report to explore the CDO Universe, and was the culmination of more than two years of exhaustive research. CDO Club GOLD and PLATINUM members get this for free.
