we've got a lot to talk about
November 26, 2023

CM’s “Marketers on Fire” editorial series highlights the people and campaigns that are shaping, pushing and disrupting the marketing industry. The profiles offer insights from executives at the top of their game, spotlight innovative programs and erudite thinking, and provide career advice to those with C-suite aspirations. Here’s a look back at the last five Marketers on Fire, a collection of conversations with CMOs from MetLife, Dickies, Walgreens, UScellular and Anywhere Real Estate.

MetLife Global CMO, Michael Roberts

MetLife’s annual Employee Benefit Trends Study is a thought leadership piece initially designed to demonstrate the brand’s expertise in the benefits product space through providing observations, trends and key research. But in the last couple of years, the conversation has shifted more toward the future of work and how benefits contribute to the employee value proposition over time. We spoke with Roberts about the marketing strategy behind the report and B2B thought leadership.

Dickies Global CMO, Sarah Crockett

Jameson whiskey and workwear brand Dickies launched a capsule collection earlier this year inspired by the brands’ mutual dedication to and celebration of the art of craftsmanship. We caught up with Dickies Global CMO Sarah Crockett to talk about the partnership’s strategic marketing goals and best practices for brand collabs.

Walgreens CMO, Linh Peters

Walgreens launched its first weeklong savings event earlier this year, dubbed “myW Days,” which offers members of its myWalgreens loyalty program increased cash rewards, daily deals and other benefits for its more than 110 million participants. Walgreens CMO Linh Peters discusses the marketing goals of the promotional event, loyalty programs and managing growth.

UScellular CMO, Eric Jagher

According to UScellular marketing chief Eric Jagher, going up against your direct competitors may not be the best way to break through. That idea led him to challenge something bigger than the category. We spoke with him about a recent campaign, strategies for setting the brand apart and more.

Anywhere Real Estate CMO, Esther-Mireya Tejeda

The real estate buyer journey has changed a lot in the past 15 years. So naturally, marketing that process to individuals must evolve along with it. We spoke with Esther-Mireya Tejeda, the first enterprise-level CMO at Anywhere Real Estate, about what that shift entails and transforming the consumer experience within the real estate industry.
