Meet the CMI Team

One of our favorite things about CMI is our team. While a number of us are based in Cleveland, our team is spread all around the world.

Stephanie Stahl

General Manager

As General Manager of CMI, I lead the brand’s event and digital operations – and get to work with the best team on the planet! Previously, I served as VP of Content Marketing for UBM’s Technology portfolio, providing strategic guidance on content development, content optimization, audience engagement, and go-to-market platforms for our technology clients. I’ve worked for UBM, which is now owned by Informa, for more than two decades, helping shape new multimedia content and event offerings. I live in the Washington, DC area with my husband and we enjoy spending time taking care of our many pets and visiting our two daughters on their college campuses.

Robert Rose

Chief Strategy Advisor

Robert is the founder and chief strategy officer of The Content Advisory, the education and consulting group for The Content Marketing Institute. Robert has worked with more than 500 companies, including 15 of the Fortune 100. He’s provided content marketing and strategy advice for global brands such as Capital One, NASA, Dell, McCormick Spices, Hewlett Packard, Microsoft, and The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation. Robert’s third book – Killing Marketing, with co-author Joe Pulizzi has been called the “book that rewrites the rules of marketing”. His second book – Experiences: The Seventh Era of Marketing is a top seller and has been called a “treatise, and a call to arms for marketers to lead business innovation in the 21st century.” Robert’s first book, Managing Content Marketing, spent two weeks as a top ten marketing book on and is generally considered to be the “owners manual” of the Content Marketing process.

Peter Loibl

Head of Sales

I’m the Head of Sales of CMI and TCA, which serves as CMI’s in-house content agency. An early-stage CMI team member and the brand’s original VP of Sales, I’ve enjoyed the journey of watching CMI and Content Marketing World grow from infancy through our acquisition by UBM (now part of Informa Tech) and I’m excited to play a role in keeping our business thriving under the watch of our new parent company.

My 20+ years of media and marketing experience include multiple senior sales management positions (including Crain Communications and American Business Media), running the US business of a Martech startup, and dozens of speaking spotlights, content contributions and recognition as an Onalytics Top 100 Content Marketing Influencer.

Kim Moutsos

kim_moutsosVice President of Editorial

I was thrilled and humbled to join CMI in late 2017 to head up the team that plans, produces, polishes, and packages nearly everything you read on the site.

After more than 20 years of working in content marketing (for tech companies large and small), I’m ready to swap stories about content marketing with this engaged and engaging community. In particular, I love to talk to content marketers who’ve successfully built loyal audiences and produced measurable business results. And also to content marketers who are still working on it.

I left my heart near San Francisco. (The rest of me lives there, too.)

Jodi Harris

Director of Content Strategy

My CMI journey is an epic tale, best told in person so you can experience it in high-definition – complete with side stories and wild hand gesticulations. Until we have the pleasure of meeting IRL, I’ll say this:

In the 11+ years that I’ve worked with this amazing team, I’ve been involved in nearly every aspect of our editorial operations. Currently, I’m director of content strategy, a role I describe as a combination of strategic alchemist, process architect, and creative explorer. I perform at my best whenever I get to focus my creativity, deep audience understanding, and penchant for tech experimentation on helping marketers conquer any content challenge more effectively.

Prior to this role, I spent over a decade developing and managing content initiatives for brand clients in the entertainment, CPG, health care, technology, and biotech industries, as well as for agencies and media brands. But as those days weren’t bathed in the warm, orange glow of CMI, did they ever truly exist?
