Joe Pulizzi

Executive Director

I am the Founder and Executive Director of the Content Marketing Institute. My job is to help the team get their job done. If you have ideas or feedback about what we are doing, I’d love to hear from you!

I’ve spent more than a decade teaching marketers how to be publishers. As one of the founders of the content marketing movement, I founded CMI and Junta42 after co-writing THE handbook on content marketing, Get Content, Get Customers. I travel around the world talking to businesses, in keynotes and workshops, about the need to create valuable media channels, leveraging print, online, in-person and social media platforms in the process.

I’m so glad you have joined us at CMI. I have found that a lot of people understand the whyof content marketing, but they have a lot of questions about how they should execute their initiatives.
