Share to Twitter Share to Linkedin CMO of 6sense , taking the guesswork out of predictable revenue growth with the power of AI and insights to uncover buyers already in market. It’s not unusual for executive searches to fluctuate throughout the year, but this year I’m noticing a big uptick in CMO recruiting that may go beyond seasonality. I’m fielding more calls than ever, and I’m not alone. Members of the CMO peer groups I’m part of have mentioned the same increased attention. In our discussions, one main theory emerged to explain why companies are suddenly on the hunt for CMOs: growth. Companies may be recognizing that in the face of economic headwinds, markets are changing rapidly. And growth is difficult without the leadership of a market expert.

A well regarded Dallas chef and restaurateur, Houser opened a restaurant 14 years ago and began listening to justice-involved youth. Beginning in 2011, with a busy restaurant to run, Houser began a series of pop up dinners with youth on the side. “I needed to walk the talk,” said Houser. He created work experiences for young people that hadn’t seen much opportunity in their lives. He saw young people become proud of their skills, gain confidence and become part of a team. After 41 pop up dinners, Houser sold his restaurant and, in 2015, opened Café Momentum in center city Dallas to help 15-19 year old adjudicated youth create a fresh start. Every meal of fresh, locally sourced, new American cuisine at Café Momentum is prepared and served by young people involved in the program under the guidance of award-winning chefs. … [Read more...] about How A Dallas Restaurant Became A National Youth Development System
