October 30, 2014 - Atlanta, GA
JOIN LIKE-MINDED PROFESSIONALS IN YOUR FIELD FOR A FULL DAY OF LEARNING. EXPLORE CUTTING EDGE CONTENT AND EXPAND YOUR NETWORK WITH THE BEST AND BRIGHTEST EXECUTIVES IN THE REGION!
The good news: the economy is slowly picking up speed, and consumers’ spending habits are reflecting that. The bad news: consumers are still being very cautious with their dollars, and they are now hyper-connected with each other and the media, granting them unlimited information and opportunity to scrutinize. Consequently, today’s CMO faces a lot more pressure to demonstrate value to consumers in a much more competitive market. There is an intensified need to maintain the exceptional components of a strong brand identity while also constantly re-tailoring the brand to the changing wants and needs of the modern consumer. Similarly, while CMOs feel pressure to maintain strong traditional marketing channels, they are faced with the challenge of taking advantage of the multitude of opportunities within digital marketing and smoothly integrating these into their overall marketing strategy.
Argyle Executive Forum is bringing together leading CMOs and marketing leaders from a variety of industry verticals to discuss best-practices and innovative marketing strategies in a discussion-based format at our 2014 CMO Leadership Forum taking place in Atlanta.
This event will feature insights from top

SunTrust Bank View Bio »
I am a very serious marketer. Just look at my picture. It’s clear I mean business with my dark suit and non-smiling face. Well, first of all, I work at a bank – we all wear suits. And five skin cancer surgeries killed the nerves on the left side of my face. So, although I’m smiling on the inside, it’s hard to tell on the outside. This works to my advantage, however. When sitting in a room full of bankers, a serious expression makes me appear pensive, determined and strategic. Who would’ve thought those surgeries could have a positive career impact?
Right now (at least before my boss reads this), I lead Marketing for the most serious part of SunTrust – the Wholesale Banking segment – which includes Corporate & Investment Banking, Commercial Real Estate, Commercial & Business Banking and Treasury & Payment Solutions. I lead an extremely talented team of marketers that develop strategic plans to drive Wholesale’s growth. The good news is that we, as a business, are winning. The great news is that we, as a Marketing Team, add increasing value to help the business win even more.
