CDO Jobs, Jobs, Jobs!
2014 was the 'summer of the CDO,' with dozens of CDO positions filled at major organizations from GE Capital to the US Department of Transportation, from the CDO at the Ministry of Justice (UK) to News Corp and the NY Times. 

We saw the advent of the first-ever title of "CDO and CEO Analytics," proving that companies are finally realizing the importance of data as the lifeblood of the new economy. 

And I just returned from a lunch in Paris with the CIO of France and the newly hired CDO of France - the first instance where a country has ever hired a CDO. And I guarantee it won't be the last.

“Congratulations and thanks to David Mathison for spotting the need for community and collaboration in the growing Chief Digital Officer space, and for having the wherewithal, network, and organizational talent to put together such a top-notch event in its inaugural year. Next year’s summit should be even more of a must-do for anyone working digital at senior levels in all kinds of businesses.”
Teddy Goff 
Digital Director 
President Barack Obama 2008 and 2012 
“David, here’s a handy C^3 test for conference value: Did I learn at least three new perspectives? Check. Did I meet at least three interesting people? Check. Did I take back at least three relevant pieces of news I can use? Check. Flying colors for the Chief Digital Officer Summit 2013! Thank you so much, and yes, I’d be very pleased to participate next year!”
Perry Hewitt 
Chief Digital Officer 
Harvard University 
“Sometimes a conference comes along that hits the trifecta – hot topic, high-caliber attendees, and stellar location. The first Chief Digital Officer Summit reached that mark with ease, and I look forward to attending the next one.”
Eric Hellweg 
Managing Director, Digital Strategy/Editorial Director 
Harvard Business Review 
“Congratulations on the inaugural Chief Digital Officer Summit. Rarely does a conference offer such high caliber content and attendees. Kudos to David Mathison on creating an event that sparked such great insights and conversation.”
