The economic challenges of the past four-and-a-half years have stifled executive compensation, save for the incredibly overcompensated (and in some cases, completely shameless) big company CEOs we've read too much about during that time.
For the vast majority of executives, there's been scant — if any — movement to the upside in salary and bonus terms, and far greater pressures on their ownership shares or stock options, in some cases putting them underwater for some time.

In this candid conversation
with ExecuNet, innovative branding strategist Russell Stevens shares his views on why social engagement is so important to business today, the future of monologue brands, and other aspects of executive life.
He says there is an incredible amount of downward pressure on CMOs to do more with less and that advertising on TV is not the only way to build a brand, nor does it guarantee engagement. He states that if "marketers can figure out how to engage people, at scale, using all this great media, you now have a much more emotionally engaging, but measurable, way of connecting with people. That's the foundation toward moving toward social media."
