Extending the CDO Tenure: Lessons from Leading CDOs on Delivering Business Value for Long-Term Success

← Back to Agenda

According to NewVantage Partners annual CDO executive survey, 65% of leading Fortune 1000 firms have now appointed a CDO, up from 12% a decade ago.  However, according to an August 2021 Harvard Business Review article, the average CDO tenure is just 2.5 years.  This session of leading CDOs will consider what factors ensure traction, success, and longevity for corporate CDOs in today’s high-demand business environment.

MITCDOIQ veteran moderator and author Randy Bean will host a panel of leading Fortune 1000 CDOs for this compelling and must-see discussion.
