The Hired Guns are seeking a VP of Growth Marketing with a digital-first, paid-media mindset to lead a top-notch marketing team of fifty people at a billion-dollar global company experiencing rapid growth, looking to accelerate it, and aiming for a major liquidity event in the three- to five-year timeframe.
The Nitty Gritty
The backstory on the organization and why they need to hire you!
This powerhouse billion-dollar global company is creating innovative ways for companies to reach customers they can’t meet in person. They’re broadening their reach in an expanding, rapidly-changing industry, and, following a dramatic increase in demand due to COVID-19, they’re now stretching for even more growth. To get the job done, they need an experienced VP of Growth Marketing to lead a distinguished team of fifty marketers whose shared goal is to drive the kind of growth that will enable the company to attain a successful exit in 3-5 years (carrying with it the potential for equity participation by key employees). The VP of Growth Marketing will play a critical role in leading the go-to-market strategy, capabilities, and activities of the overall business.
How you’ll know if you’re a fit…
You have traditional marketing experience with a digital-first, growth-marketing, paid-media mindset, and over the course of a successful career in marketing, you’ve grown into a high-level strategic thinker who’s used to seeing several years down the road and planning accordingly. You’re a transformational leader who’s able to inspire very large teams where your direct reports are at the director level. Ideally, you have experience working in a B2B2C environment, or in a services- and product-based company with a two-step distribution model. You aren’t afraid to challenge the status quo as a positive disruptor and change agent. You’re inquisitive, provocative, and ready to collaborate and partner with key cross-functional members of the team.
