About Club CMO

Club CMO is a member organization that brings together Chief Marketing Officers (CMOs) and other senior marketing executives for networking, knowledge-sharing and professional development. Through a peer-led, no-selling environment the Club provides exclusive access for marketing leaders to connect, exchange ideas, and stay updated on industry trends and common challenges. 

Members connect in-person at local dinners, informal get-togethers and VIP experiences; at industry Clubhouses and engaging annual Summits, and virtually through a private virtual platform where CMOs discuss challenges and share best practice, and cultivate career-shaping opportunities in the field of marketing. 

Originally founded by Pete Krainik in 2015 as The CMO Club, the organization maintains the goal of creating an authentic, no-sales environment for marketing executives to come together and discuss ideas and share solutions. The community has since become a global organization with members across North America, Europe and Asia Pacific. 

Brand Innovators

In June of 2023 the organization was rebranded as Club CMO, and joined forces with Brand Innovators, allowing the two communities to build upon their synergies to serve the marketing professionals with engaging learning, networking, and in-person experiences.

Today, Club CMO continues its commitment to its core values offering a space for executive marketing leaders to connect with supportive like-minded peers to refocus, re-energize and transform the world of marketing – one genuine connection at a time.
