Welcome to the What's Next! podcast with Tiffani Bova.
This week I have the absolute pleasure of speaking with the first What’s Next guest to also be quoted in my book, Growth IQ. Mayur Gupta is the Chief Marketing Officer at Freshly, where he is leading a team of marketers to make Freshly an iconic brand and drive breakthrough growth. Before Freshly, Mayur was the Global VP for Growth & Marketing at Spotify, the Chief Marketing Officer at Healthgrades and the first-ever Global Chief Marketing Technologist at Kimberly Clark, one of the largest global consumer packaged goods companies. In 2014, Mayur was recognized as one of the “40 under 40” leading marketers in the industry by Brand Innovators, was profiled by the Harvard Business Review and the Economist as the model Chief Marketing Technologist, and also received the CMO Programmatic Award by the CMO Club. He sits on the Board Of Directors for D’Addario and TropicSport, and on various Advisory Boards including the IBM's CMO Council, Brand Innovators and Global MarTech Conferences. I am thrilled to have Mayur Gupta on the What’s Next! Podcast today!
THIS EPISODE IS PERFECT FOR… marketers looking for a master class of modern marketing and how to create an experience that will influence, inspire, and change a human life from one of the quintessential marketers of our time.
TODAY’S MAIN MESSAGE… Mayur brings his engineering mind to the world of marketing. His message? Your internal culture–your company culture–is key and central to the culture you are trying to build around your product. It’s important and indispensable to use everything at your disposal: math, science, research. But, ultimately, it’s all about being customer-focused, authentic, and transparent. At the core of any well-rounded, successful, and long-lasting organization is a human-centric strategy that is sincere and authentic. Your goals as an organization should always be customer-focused, and that starts within your organization with your very first customer, your employee. You cannot be customer-focused if you do not first care for and about the people you work with, because they are the brand.
WHAT I LOVE MOST… Mayur’s transparency on the fact that this is all a journey and things in our industry continue to change based on what the customer actually wants from us.
