    The most innovative CMOs, streaming's winners and losers, emotional-based ad targeting

    Abstract:Burger King's Fernando Machado, who continues to deliver wacky and irreverent TV spots, leads our list of top global marketers.

      Hello!

      This week we published our fourth annual list of the 25 most innovative chief marketers. With the $221 billion US ad industry facing disruption on several fronts, marketers have to navigate fragmented consumer attention, pioneer new ad models, and fend off direct-to-consumer upstarts.

      And leading this year's list was ... Fernando Machado of Burger King. Senior advertising reporter Tanya Dua, who compiled the list, wrote that Machado continues to deliver envelope-pushing ad campaigns like its “Moody Meals” that threw shade at McDonald's Happy Meals and its Google Home of the Whopper TV spot that hacked Google Home devices to dish details about the Whopper. Machado also oversaw Burger King's first Super Bowl spot in 13 years, which turned heads by making archival footage of Andy Warhol eating a Whopper into a 45-second ad.

      Burger King's been on a growth tear, too: Its market value rose 23% this year to $29.9 billion while the much-bigger McDonald's rose 10%. Burger King also opened up 1,000 restaurants around the globe last year to McDonald's 600. Read who else made the list here.
