She will work on seamlessly integrating advanced marketing strategies and AI-driven solutions to ensure transformative revenue and cost impact in 2X’s clients.

This lever improves the CMO’s brand and builds credibility for the marketing function. Marketing 2X, therefore, has a direct impact on the success of the CMO profession. It was critical to me that we have the customer’s voice in the ongoing strategy of our business and the ownership of our marketing function. Lisa is an incredibly talented, world-class CMO, as well as a two-time customer of 2X. I am thrilled to have someone of her caliber joining 2X as our first CMO—we are lucky to have her on our team.” said 2X CEO and Founder Domenic Colasante.

I look forward to leveraging my expertise to help marketing leaders both transform their operating model and apply generative AI to maximize marketing impact.”
