Chief DIGITAL Officer JOBS Update for September 2018


Welcome back to our Chief Digital Officer JOBS Update, through September 2018.

Big news this month: more new Chief Digital Officers were hired in September 2018 than in any other month to date!

As our members know, we’ve been tracking this trend for more than seven years, and posting them in our biweekly JOB Updates since Q4 2014.

And, as usual, the last few months have also seen more CDOs becoming CEO, President, and Board Directors at prestigious, global, publicly traded companies.

We recently co-published a report with Bain Capital on this career path, “101 CDOs who Became CEO,” which can be downloaded here. See our Hall of Fame page for the full list.

In addition to the tremendous global growth in Chief Digital Officer hires, the demand for Chief Data Officers continues to increase at a pace surpassing that of their digital colleagues.

This Thursday, we’ll post our Chief Data Officer JOB Update for September 2018.

We’ve got big plans for Q4 2018 – we are currently finishing up a $1.25m seed round for the launch our new initiative, Innovation Exchange (iXi), an online talent platform that uses AI to match executives with targeted jobs and opportunities. The goal of the platform is to help digital, data, and security leaders find their next dream job.

In 2019, we will raise our first round of capital for the CDO Club, and will re-launch that platform with more features to help our members get their jobs done efficiently and effectively.

Meantime, congratulations to all the new CDOs, and we wish all our members continued success!
