This week, Ian goes backstage with David Alexander, the Chief Marketing Officer at Everbridge, leading the global strategy and vision for the brand and the go-to-market motions for the company’s market-leading critical event management and national public warning software solutions.

As you’ll hear, David has over two decades of experience in leading marketing and sales teams for some of the world’s most innovative technology companies, including Microsoft, SAP Concur, F5, and now Everbridge and is passionate about building and leading ground-breaking, purpose-driven teams that focus on innovation.

David is also an Executive Professor of Marketing in Technology at Texas A&M University, where he shares his insights and expertise with students who aspire to pursue careers in technology.

They discuss his career, what inspired him to choose marketing, his advice on building teams, his work with his students and his excellent suggestion for our portal to marketing hell, the Rockstar CMO Swimming Pool.

Following that splendid conversation, we wind down the week in the Rockstar CMO virtual bar with Robert Rose, Chief Trouble Maker at The Content Advisory, to discuss what’s on his marketing mind over a cocktail, and this week it’s rules and metrics.
