Dallas, TX, December 30, 2010 --(PR.com
)-- On Wednesday, Jan. 12th, the Dallas Fort Worth American Marketing Association will be hosting an evening of networking, followed by a panel discussion with three senior level Chief Marketing Officers: Mike McCalley, Corporate Director of Marketing for Dresser Industries; Ann Davids, Senior Vice President and Chief Marketing Officer for Rent-A-Center; and moderator Brice Campbell, Executive in Residence at Temerlin Advertising Institute for Southern Methodist University. This annual catered event is available to members and student members, and will provide an excellent opportunity to meet, engage, learn and question some of the profession’s best and brightest.
With over a half-century of shared marketing experience, McCalley, Davids, and Campbell have risen through the ranks in every market condition imaginable—bullish / bearish; seller’s / buyer’s—and lived to tell about it. Their insight on the turbulence of depressed markets (and how to strategically emerge from them), combined with their specialized knowledge of the greater Dallas Fort Worth area, makes them an unparalleled source of judgment. Attendees will leave the event more prepared to incorporate ideas and perspectives on how CMOs are interpreting customer demand in today’s slow market, and take steps to more tightly align their marketing strategies with the changes taking place in both consumer and business buying patterns/behaviors/priorities.
Southern Methodist University in Dallas, Texas is supplying both the food and venue for the occasion. More information can be located by visiting: http://bit.ly/facxMq (Please use bit.ly link so we can track the hits consistently.)
