Over 130 CMOs have moved from

“What do you think?” to “I’m doing this.”

Access the same advice the world’s top CMOs use.

CMOs around the globe turn to Alan for guidance.

Your job comes with high expectations and too little respect. Alan will help you navigate and thrive in the C-Suite.

Hi, I’m Alan Gonsenhauser.

At Forrester Research and SiriusDecisions I mentored over a hundred CMOs as their CMO Executive Advisor. Together we navigated every kind of challenge a CMO faces in today’s marketing environment.
Whatever marketing problem you’re dealing with, I’ve seen and resolved it. Together we’ll spot the patterns, adjust the big picture, and solve it. 
You get a strategic, holistic, and results-oriented approach to B2B or B2B2C marketing. We’ll eliminate random acts of marketing, resolve cross-functional alignment issues, and accelerate customer-led net revenue retention and growth.
I’ve served as a CMO and P&L General Manager across multiple sectors, including SaaS software models, professional services, and healthcare technology. I’m a well-known expert witness in court cases involving global marketing and distribution channels, and an adjunct graduate marketing professor at Emerson College in Boston.

The Star CMO Advisory Program

This zoom-based, on-demand service applies decades of CMO experience to your situation. You'll hear how other CMOs in your situation succeeded, and get specific steps you can take to move forward.

How does it work?

I'm going to listen. A lot. We’ll talk about players involved, where they’re coming from, how to deal with them, how your situation is the same as (and how it differs from) what other CMOs have faced. And then the steps to resolve it.
