Making Marketing Matter With the New York City Brand: An Interview With CMO Joe Perello

by   |    |  1,646 views

Joe Perello was appointed Chief Marketing Officer of New York City by Mayor Michael Bloomberg this April, and by September he had signed a $166 million sponsorship deal with Snapple.

He began his marketing career at, and spent 10 years with, MBNA, the credit card company, where he learned about the emotional allure of sports marketing and the power of direct marketing. He has worked for other well-known brands, including the New York Yankees and David Bowie.

Young: How is marketing organized at the City of New York?

Perello: The Mayor appointed me to generate revenue through marketing vehicles, commercial means primarily. And, basically, marketing means growing jobs, growing tourism through marketing.
