Beth Comstock, GE's SVP & CMO since 2003, spoke to the Harvard Business School Club of New York on December 10. In a company as diverse as GE, what is the CMO's role? Beth Comstock explained that the heart of her role is developing new market opportunities for GE.
GE Ventures, which reports to her, evaluates new ventures, analyzes emerging markets, and develops sales and marketing programs for start-up initiatives. One venture that Comstock spearheaded was an ultrasound-in-your-pocket device in Indonesia. To get this venture off the ground, she embedded marketers in the field along with technologists who together looked at how local medical services were delivered, and how GE could improve on that system. The ultrasound device resulted from that ethnographic study.

Krizelman, who co-founded MediaRadar, the SaaS big data and analytics firm that revolutionized the ad selling process, will talk on the evening of March 18 about the enormous challenges for the media who sell ad inventory and for the advertisers who buy it. The off-the-record event will take place after work (note for returning attendees -- this is not a breakfast event) with registration at 6:30 pm, and the event from 7:00 to 8:00.
MediaRadar now has 400 employees and more than $20 million in annual revenue. The company is disruptive to traditional research firms since historically, most research is passive; MediaRadar does collect and create its own research, but packages it extensively, so it’s specifically made for ad sales professionals. The most basic annual subscription per seat costs clients $27,000.
Before MediaRadar, from 2003 through 2006, Krizelman worked for Bertelsmann in publishing, working in Barcelona and New York. He also served as cofounder and CEO of theglobe.com, from 1994 to 2001. He led the company from inception to taking it public on NASDAQ.
Quantum's Brian O'Leary is the moderator for this event.
