Q&A with Margaret Molloy, Global CMO, Siegel+Gale

MEDIA 7 | May 20, 2019

Margaret Molloy, Global CMO of Siegel+Gale has a 20-year track record as a business-to-business growth instigator, achieved by uniting brand building with demand generation. In Siegel+Gale’s Simplifiers series, Margaret Molloy interviews business leaders who put simplicity to work.

Considered a "CMO whisperer," Margaret is a highly influential CMO and convener of panels and roundtables. She has been recognized by Forbes as one of the top 10 CMOs on Twitter. Margaret also serves as the New York Chair of the Marketing Society

MEDIA 7: If we were to say to a bunch of people who know you, ‘Give us three adjectives that best describe you’, what would we hear?
MARGARET MOLLOY: 
Passionate, energetic and influential.

M7: What is your favourite part of working at Siegel+Gale?
MM:
Both our ethos—helping brands realize the power of simplicity, and the strategists, designers, researchers, and writers who deliver on that ethos to our clients. Our teams are truly simplifiers. I believe that in our harried, cluttered world, brands that focus on simplicity, win.


"It's incumbent on brands to be relevant in order to be part of a conversation that drives their business forward. And to be relevant, you must be in tune with your customers’ needs."

M7: What is the ‘power of simplicity’ that you’re helping CMOs and brand leaders realize?
MM: Simplicity is the ultimate driver of brand loyalty. It inspires people to spend more with a brand, motivates employees to deliver on a brand’s promise and ultimately, drives financial gain for those companies that embrace it.

M7: At Siegel+Gale, how do you align sales and marketing to achieve your branding goals?
MM:
There has always been a natural tension. A CMO’s job is to reconcile that tension by setting a vision for the brand and determining the resource allocation between short-term revenue targets and long-term brand value. At Siegel+Gale, we do not engage in random acts of marketing—all marketing is in the service of the brand and the revenue targets.


"A CMO’s job is to reconcile tension between brand-building programs and performance marketing by setting a vision for the brand and determining the resource allocation between short-term revenue targets and long-term brand value."

M7: Margaret, you were listed on Forbes Top 10 Most Influential Chief Marketing Officers on Social Media in 2017 and have won IrishCentral’s 2018 Creativity and Arts Award in Fashion and Design. How is social media transforming the marketing landscape and how do you see it evolving in future?
MM:
In previous eras, a brand’s responsibility was to broadcast its message and product offerings to the community. Today, with the advent of social media, it has become a multi-party dialogue. The fundamental shift is from controlling the brand message to engaging constituencies (i.e., customers, shareholders, the community at large). Therefore, it's incumbent on brands to be relevant in order to be part of a conversation that drives their business forward. And to be relevant, you must be in tune with your customers’ needs.  Social media is a great mechanism not only for engagement but also for listening.


"Simplicity is the ultimate driver of brand loyalty. It inspires people to spend more with a brand, motivates employees to deliver on a brand’s promise and ultimately, drives financial gain for those companies that embrace it."

M7: For your platform #WearingIrish, which channels helped you the most in reaching out to the target audience?
MM: I created WearingIrish to expose Ireland’s talented fashion designers to new markets and to showcase Irish fashion design on the global stage. Instagram is an obvious choice to reach shoppers and influencers; it’s a robust platform for any fashion brand because it's inherently visual.

In addition to Instagram, I leveraged my professional network on LinkedIn to build a broad-based board of advisors and potential collaborators for WearingIrish.

M7: What motivates you to get out of the bed in the morning?
MM:
I’m a connector, and I get my energy from convening the marketing community via live events and other programs. On a daily basis, I host conversations with ambitious CMOs and brand leaders about their challenges. I relish the opportunity to connect marketing leaders with the team at Siegel+Gale because of our depth of expertise in helping our clients build brands.

ABOUT SIEGEL+GALE

Q&A with Andrea Lechner-Becker, Chief Marketing Officer at LeadMD

MEDIA 7 | December 5, 2019

Andrea Lechner-Becker, Chief Marketing Officer at LeadMD is an experienced Marketing and Sales Executive with a demonstrated history of working in the marketing and advertising industry. Skilled in Business Process, Marketo, Sales, Customer Relationship Management (CRM), and IT Service Management, Andrea is also a strong business development professional and a storyteller. MEDIA 7: What inspired you to get into marketing? ANDREA LECHNER: Frankly, not having better options. I originally attended the University of Wisconsin-La Crosse thinking I’d major in Archaeology. I wanted to be Indiana Jones! But, after visiting the archaeology building – i.e. the cold, dark basement of the science building – where a girl sat to piece together pieces of an old Native American vase, I knew archaeology was not going to be the right path for me. And so, without being good at science and a major in art or art history was unlikely to pay my bills, I decided to go into “business”. I originally registered as a management major, but took my first marketing class and thought it was more interesting and switched my sophomore year. That was pretty much it. I’d never been involved in business classes or DECA in high school – I didn’t really know what to do or what jobs in marketing were even possible. I dumb lucked myself into it really. M7: As a storyteller, do you relate the brand to a story or story to the brand? AL: Both? Neither? I think there are stories in every brand, because there are people working on the brand and people engaging with the brand and people using what the brand creates. People, most often a single person, are at the heart of great stories. You can start with the “point” of the story you’re trying to tell. Say you have a software that help accountants better create reports for board meetings. It’s likely you’ll want to tell a success story about an accountant getting promoted to CFO in part because your software helped better communicate their work product to the board. You could have the idea for that and go looking for that story in your customers. OR, you could hear that story, and say, “That’s amazing!” and share it with customers, partners and internal people. Stories are all around us – the most important thing is to keep your ears and eyes open for finding them.

Choice Properties Real Estate Investment Trust | November 21, 2022

Choice Properties Real Estate Investment Trust (“Choice Properties” or the “Trust”)(TSX: CHP.UN) announced today that the Toronto Stock Exchange (“TSX”) has accepted a notice filed by Choice Properties of its intention to make a normal course issuer bid (“NCIB”). The TSX notice provides that Choice Properties may, during the 12-month period commencing November 21, 2022 and terminating November 20, 2023, purchase up to 27,566,522 of Choice Properties trust units (“Units”), representing approximately 10% of the public float of the Units, by way of a NCIB over the facilities of the TSX or through alternative trading systems or by such other means as may be permitted under applicable law. As of November 9, 2022, Choice Properties had 327,758,449 outstanding Units. Based on the average daily trading volume of 354,532 during the last six months, daily purchases will be limited to 88,633 Units, other than block purchase exceptions. Purchases of Units will be made in open market transactions over the facilities of the TSX or through alternative trading systems. In addition, Choice Properties may enter into forward purchase or swap contracts in connection with Units which may be settled by physical settlement, cash settlement or a combination thereof. The forward price will be based on market price, dividend yield and market interest rates. Choice Properties may also purchase Units through private agreements or unit repurchase programs if it receives an issuer bid exemption order permitting it to make such purchases. Any purchases of Units made by way of private agreements or under unit repurchase programs may be at a discount to the prevailing market price as provided in the relevant issuer bid exemption order. Decisions regarding the timing of future purchases of Units will be based on market conditions, Unit price and other factors. Choice Properties may elect to suspend or discontinue its NCIB at any time. Units purchased under the NCIB will be cancelled or used in connection with the Trust’s equity settled incentive plans. Choice Properties believes that the market price of Units could be such that their purchase may be an attractive and appropriate use of corporate funds. Choice Properties may also use its NCIB to acquire the number of Units that are issued pursuant to the exercise of options in order to offset the dilutive effect of options that have been exercised. Pursuant to its previous NCIB, under which Choice Properties received approval from the TSX to purchase up to 27,558,665 Units for the period of November 19, 2021 to November 18, 2022.

From time to time, when Choice Properties does not possess material non-public information about itself or its securities, it may enter into a pre-defined plan with its broker to allow for the purchase of Units at times when Choice Properties ordinarily would not be active in the market due to its own internal trading blackout periods and insider trading rules. Any such plans entered into with Choice Properties’ broker will be adopted in accordance with the requirements of applicable Canadian securities laws. About Choice Properties Real Estate Investment Trust Choice Properties is a leading Real Estate Investment Trust that creates enduring value through the ownership, operation and development of high-quality commercial and residential properties.
