Banks CMOs Take on a Greater Role

There is a new trend occurring at big banks, CMOs are becoming the driving force behind the change in marketing and a cleanup in digital media ads; most people still use and trust banks, even after the financial crisis and the recent bad news of big fines or scandals; recently the focus in banking has shifted to customer experience and marketers have become as big a part of the product teams as they are of the marketing teams; customers are starting to expect their experience to be more personalized, focused and more impactful to their lives; marketers have moved beyond their role of storytelling and moved into a more active role on how to drive the best experience for the different customers.
