ChiefDigitalOfficer.net, a growing community of senior digital professionals, announced today that it has secured Ian Cross of Bentley University’s Center for Marketing Technology to moderate the upcoming executive roundtable on October 22nd at Menton in Boston.
The event is an invitation-only gathering of digital executives from big brands, institutions, and start-ups from the Greater Boston area.
“Ian Cross is the gold standard,” says Tim Bourgeois, founder and executive editor of Chief Digital Officer. “He’s held senior positions at corporations, managed big budgets and P&L’s, has international experience, and now he’s running the premier marketing technology lab in the U.S. He’s at the intersection of digital business, web technology, and online marketing, and that’s precisely how we view the world at Chief Digital Officer.”
Ian Cross to Join An Outstanding Group of Panelists
While Mr. Cross will be responsible for ensuring a lively, fast-paced discussion at the event, his biggest challenge may very well involve time management, as the talented group of panelists are sure to invite a steady stream of questions and comments. Panelists include:
Brent Turner, Chief Digital Officer, MIT Technology Review
Chris Capone, Senior Vice President / ECommerce, Liberty Mutual
Mike Troiano, Chief Marketing Officer, Actifio
“We’ve been genuinely overwhelmed by the response to this event,” says Jen Simonson, Event Manager at Chief Digital Officer. “It’s exceeded all of our expectations.”
Intimate Format, Elegant Venue
The event will be attended by no more than 30 professionals, and will be held at one of the top restaurants in Boston. “Our primary focus from the outset — our only focus, really — has been to make sure that we create an environment that accommodates the senior digital professional” says Tim Bourgeois. “So we needed to provide compelling content, secure an appropriate venue, and do whatever necessary to create an environment where attendees would learn something new, meeting a few new valuable contacts, and be home in time to put their kids to bed.”
The event is being held at Menton, located in the Fort Point neighborhood of Boston’s burgeoning Innovation District. Menton is universally regarded as one of the city’s top restaurants, and and is the city’s only Relais & Châteaux, AAA Five-Diamond, and Forbes Travel Guide Five-Star property.
“I can’t speak highly enough about Menton,” says Jen Simonson. “The room is perfect, the service is outstanding, and it goes without saying that the food is unforgettable.”
