Stephanie McMahon has been named to Forbes’ list of the world’s Most Influential Chief Marketing Officers, ranking second overall on the list.
McMahon, WWE’s Chief Brand Officer, is featured on the annual list of the top 50 CMOs around the world. Forbes wrote the following on Stephanie:
McMahon is an outspoken and highly visible executive at WWE, a company in an industry often mired in controversy. The daughter of WWE CEO Vince McMahon, she is a former WWE Superstar herself, and she’s a big proponent of WWE Superstars growing their own brands via social media. She has also championed women’s equality in the WWE.
This year she spoke out about making the events that went on during the pandemic safe for fans and Superstars. In June she also reportedly shared what she and the company are doing to eliminate racial inequality on The Female Quotient—and partnered with FQ founder Shelley Zalis to create a discussion series called “Women in the Business of Sports.”
Phil Schiller, Senior VP of Worldwide Marketing for Apple, topped this year’s list.
