The CMO Podcast


Jim is celebrating the 300th episode of The CMO Podcast with a bang! He welcomes back three of his very first guests on the show from 2019: Kristin Lemkau, the Chief Executive Officer of J.P. Morgan Wealth Management at JPMorgan Chase, Lilian Tomovich, the Chief Marketing & Experience Officer at Barclays, and Dean Aragón, Group Brand Officer and CEO & Vice-Chairman of Shell Brands International AG. In a way, they co-created this podcast, helping Jim find those initial footsteps and directing the show to what it has become today. First up is Lili Tomovich, the CMO & Experience Officer at Barclays Bank. Jim had Lili as his third guest on the show in 2019, when she worked as the Chief Experience & Marketing Officer at MGM Resorts International, a $15 billion global hospitality and entertainment company. Her career path has included ten years at Mastercard as head of Marketing for Canada and Senior Vice President of Consumer Marketing for the US market. After time within the hospitality space, she returned to financial services and joined Barclays in 2021. She created and accelerated transformational growth for the bank, while reimagining the customer experience. Jim's next returning guest, Dean Aragón has come on the podcast a few times over the years; he was the 10th guest back in 2019, and later joined Jim for a roundtable discussion at Cannes in 2022. Dean is also celebrating an anniversary. He has worked at Shell for a decade, serving as the Group Brand Officer and CEO & Vice-Chairman of Shell Brands International–or, as he puts it, Shell’s "Chief Brand Guy." Prior to Shell, Dean spent 15 years in Senior Brand Marketing roles at Unilever, across a range of categories and markets. For this episode's final conversation, Jim comes full circle to welcome back his very first guest, Kristin Lemkau. Kristin is The Chief Executive Officer of J.P. Morgan Wealth Management at JPMorgan Chase, where her team oversees the U.S. wealth management division. When they spoke back in 2019, Kristin was the Chief Marketing Officer of JPMorgan Chase, where she led a global marketing team of 2,000 people with a $5B+ marketing budget. Tune in for an episode filled to the brim with stories that have carried this show throughout the last five years. Here's to 300, and many more to come!
