“Most CEOs know that they need to develop and implement a high-level marketing strategy to move their businesses to the next level but find the cost of an in-house senior marketing executive prohibitive. That’s why our solution of fractional Chief Marketing Officers is gaining such quick traction in the Northeast United States,” said Barbara Fowler, Chief Outsiders’ regional director for the northeast.
The impressive portfolios of the Chief Outsiders team span across multiple industries and global expansion strategies, all focused on an ROI-based approach.
“I’m energized by all the opportunities that come with being a Chief Outsider. As a fractional chief marketing officer, I will be able to support growing businesses directly with my expertise, but they also offer them the benefit of the entire Chief Outsiders network which provides additional support and collaborative expertise that no business would get by hiring an in-house CMO,” said Yanovsky.
Chief Outsiders is expanding nationally and currently has regional operations in the Texas cities of Houston, Austin and Dallas as well as in New York, New Jersey, Connecticut, Florida, Georgia and Tennessee.
