My guest today is one of the World’s Most Influential CMOs of 2021 according to Forbes. Her name is Andrea Brimmer and she is the Chief Marketing & PR Officer for Ally Financial - a digital financial services company that has disrupted the banking industry.
Referred to as the “Chief Disruption Officer”, Andrea spearheaded the creation of the Ally brand, developing everything from the brand pillars and cultural framework to the value proposition and delivery in the marketplace.
Her many honours and accolades include winning Adweek’s 2020 Brand Genius awards for marketers who have skillfully led their brands’ messaging to new heights. She has also been named three times to Forbes’ list of World’s Most Influential CMOs and is a two-time honouree of 100 Leading Women by Automotive News.
I invited Andrea to be a guest on my show to talk about her role in the re-branding of Ally. I wanted to know how she helped the company emerge with a strong reputation as a “different” kind of financial services company. And I was curious to learn what Ally does differently that makes them a disruptor brand.
