CMO Rapid Fire: Behind The Scenes

There’s much more to a CMO than their business and marketing accomplishments so we created a CMO Rapid Fire Campaign to get to know CMO Club Members a little better! Here is a quick roundup of recent members featured and an extra behind the scenes look at what you didn’t see the first time!

CMO RAPID FIRE Angela Tribelli

What we didn’t share…
Favorite Book: I’m in book publishing, so this changes all the time depending on what I’m reading. Right now it’s “The Nest” by Cynthia D’Aprix Sweeney. Pitch-perfect story about an utterly dysfunctional family.
Author: Now you’re really trying to get me into trouble…
Saying: “If you’re not getting the answer you want, ask a different question.”
Marketing Campaign: Calgon’s “Take Me Away” tv commercials from the 1970’s.  I still remember those ads four decades later, and still think “Calgon: Take Me Away!” at the end of a tough day. That’s brilliant marketing.
