Future B2B CMO 100 criteria

B2B marketers are reckoning with several disruptive trends.

Wider challenges, where appropriate, are seen as opportunities, which only the very best marketers will be able to activate. And many of these marketers will form the Future B2B CMO 100.

On behalf of HotTopics, we wish all our nominees the best of luck!
