“We are delighted to get Paul McIntyre back on board,” said Financial Review editor in chief Michael Stutchbury.

McIntyre added: “There’s no shortage of business and trade media reporting on the tactical side of marketing campaigns but less about the bigger perspective on marketing’s remit at a corporate strategy level into boards and the c-suite,”

“There are enormous challenges and opportunities for chief marketing officers, particularly as technology-led change continues to shake-out business strategy and the focus on customers. CMO Brief has its eye on that horizon.”
