    Chief Marketing Officer

    Marketing guru and leading woman in tech, Bozoma St. John, has taken Silicon valley by storm. She is the newly-minted CMO of Endeavor, an entertainment conglomerate that includes highly-successful companies such as WME and IMG, UFC, the Miss Universe Organization, Droga5, and more. 

    Prior to that, she was Uber’s Chief Brand Officer, where she headed several partnerships, such as with LeBron James and Kevin Durant. At the age of five, Boz moved from Ghana to the U.S. and later attended Wesleyan University. She quickly rose the ranks as a “badass” executive no matter which Fortune 500 company she held an executive position at - from PepsiCo where she was head of music and entertainment marketing to Beats. 

    After Beats was acquired by Apple she became head of global and consumer marketing for iTunes and Apple Music. She stole the show at Apple’s keynote Worldwide Developers Conference when introducing the new Apple Music interface and the video went viral and Buzzfeed called her the “coolest person to ever go on stage at an Apple event.” Bozoma is making her mark with marketing. The recent launch of the NBA-themed national ad campaign “Rolling with the Champion” made a big splash as she tapped LeBron James and Maverick Carter’s digital agency Uninterrupted.
