The world’s most influential marketers.

The ANA Masters Circle was established in 2016 as a way for all CMOs to come together in unified leadership to transform marketing into a force for growth and a force for good.

Driven by the ANA Growth Agenda, the ANA Masters Circle is committed to helping CMOs look much further ahead to envision what their brands, business, and society will need to grow in the coming months and years ahead.

The ANA Masters Circle has brought together select teams of chief marketers to drive our industry forward:


Global CMO
Growth Council

In 2018, the CMO Growth Council was established by the ANA and Cannes Lions to represent the collective agenda and voice of a unified community of marketing's leaders and build a roadmap for driving business growth through marketing.

Led by Procter & Gamble Chief Brand Officer Marc Pritchard, the Council includes leading CMOs from 25 top brands around the world.


Global CMO
Leadership Coalition

The impact of a global pandemic and recession, combined with racial injustice around the world, underscores the need for chief marketers to work together in the face of transformative change on a global scale.

The Global CMO Leadership Coalition, which includes a cross-industry coalition of CMOs and industry partners, is dedicated to helping the marketing community manage these and other ongoing global crises.


CMO Growth
Champions Forum

As companies create innovative ways to accelerate business growth, CMOs must actively upgrade their own skill sets to influence the growth agenda.

To help CMOs make better-informed decisions, the ANA has invested heavily in the development of the CMO Growth Champions Forum, in partnership with Jim Stengel, former global chief marketing officer at Procter & Gamble and founder of the Jim Stengel Company.

The Global CMO Growth Council Summit on Marketing Leadership

On October 19, 2020, the Global CMO Growth Council mobilized the largest ever group of CMOs from around the world for one purpose: to use their combined influence to enact positive and sweeping systemic changes throughout our industry, and as a result, on society.

With “Driving Growth” at its core, the Summit was led by Marc Pritchard, chief brand officer at Procter & Gamble. Over 350 CMO delegates represented thousands of the world’s top brands, combining for over half of all global advertising and media spending. Together, they adopted a common strategic plan supported by operational business systems that will support ongoing efforts to drive growth and good.
