---------------------------------------------------------------------------------
| NEW YORK and LONDON, Aug. 31, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Organizations are |
|hiring and elevating Chief Digital Officers (CDOs) to forge new initiatives |
|and digital strategies, build market share, and challenge the status quo, |
|according to the quarterlyExecutive Monitor |
|released today byBoyden Global Executive Search. |

| |
| |
|"A CDO is a digitally savvy, business-driven leader who has what it takes to |
|transform a traditional business into a data-driven company," saidPierre |
|Fouques Duparc, Leader of Boyden's Global Technology Practice and Managing |
|Partner, Boyden France. "They combine marketing and management experience |
|with technical know-how and strategic vision to align and improve business |
|operations across the enterprise." |
| |
| |
|The report covers the prioritization of CDOs and their teams in talent |
|acquisition, challenges in terms of upgrading and integrating digital |
|platforms, cybersecurity and data protection. TheExecutive Monitor |
|also looks at C-suite sentiment on CDO hiring, expected CDO trends, and key |
|related developments in big data, cloud, mobile, the Internet of Things, 3D |
|printing and drones. |
| |
| |
|"The best Chief Digital Officers are curious, flexible, adaptable, have a view |
|into the future, and are at ease in a change environment," saidRoger T. |
|Duguay, Managing Partner, Boyden Montreal. "For many companies, CDOs are also |
|effectively taking on the role of Chief Transformation Officer, with the goal |
|of challenging the status quo and taking the business to the next level. Our |
|clients want CDOs who bring fresh insight and know what needs to be done, |
|even if they have never done it before." |
| |
| |
|The new report from Boyden also focuses on the following topics affecting CDO |
|and digital team hiring: |
| |
| * CDOs as leaders of organizational initiatives as well as development of |
| digital products and services |
| * Role of CEOs in driving digitalization |
| * CDOs as the key partner of Chief Information Officers and Chief Marketing |
| Officers |
| * Unexpected growth of CDOs in the public sector and government |
| * Accelerated hiring of CDOs with economic recovery |
| |
|"The CDO's new charter is a larger role, which includes guiding and navigating |
|the organization through the storm of digital transformation," |
|explainedDinesh Mirchandani, Managing Partner, Boyden India and Global Board |
|Member, Association of Executive Search Consultants. "The CDO's new role |
|allows the CMO to continue with the core task of ensuring a healthy presence |
|in markets, while the CIO remains in charge of managing enterprise IT. When |
|the CDO, CMO and CIO work together as a team, the organization will emerge |
|wiser and stronger than before." |
| |
| |
|"Clients are engaging us in more and more Chief Digital Officer roles, which |
|are often better driven by the CIO rather than the CMO," addedVicky Maxwell |
|Davies, Partner, Boyden UK. "CIOs understand the business model, big program |
|delivery and big transformation, which includes data and cybersecurity. Thus, |
|if you're among the top five percent of CIOs, you're among the best |
|candidates for CDO positions." |
