Pitch Predictor: New Staples Global CMO

Hello, gang. Saw this, and wanted to make sure you didn’t miss it. The new hire’s background includes P&G, Lycos and McKinsey. But a quick scan of the story suggested no retail experience. This category is a competitive one and the leaders all seem to blur together. How might these learnings impact your strategy?

(The commercial message: Brand & Personnel Backgrounders are available that can help drive approach strategy, pitch content and context. First come, first served. Call me for deets!)
