Strategic Marketing for the C-Suite examines the relevance of academic research to the most senior levels of the marketing profession, the chief marketing officer (CMO), and the interests of their C- suite colleagues, particularly those of the chief executive officer (CEO) and chief financial officer (CFO). Unless academic research is relevant at the C-suite level, it is unlikely to be paid much attention lower down the organization. Strategic Marketing for the C-Suite has three objectives: (1) to understand what we can learn from recent academic research on strategic marketing, (2) to test the validity of earlier editorial positions, and (3) to make some modest suggestions as to what the field might do better in the future. The author addresses these objectives through a review of the academic research on a set of strategic marketing issues that are of relevance to top executives. Strategic Marketing for the C-Suite is structured in four steps. First, it examines the meaning of the phrase strategic marketing to help define the scope of the literature review and the role of the CMO in the firm, drawing on both the academic and practitioner literature. The second step identifies the key domains and associated issues that are currently relevant to the CMO and C-suite including the value of marketing to the firm, managing the new digital market space, achieving profitable growth through innovation, marketing capabilities as a source of competitive advantage, and addressing society's major concerns. The third step reviews the marketing literature relating to these five domains, and, in doing so, identifies the key research themes within each domain, and draws conclusions on these themes and overall conclusions on the domain itself. The fourth and final step summarizes what we learn from a decade's worth of research on strategic marketing, draws conclusions on the validity of earlier research, and discusses the implications for the field of academic marketing.

Volume 15 of "Advances in International Marketing" explores the current research in international service marketing through the eyes of scholars from eight different countries on three continents. A truly international perspective emerges on the nature of service marketing across borders, as well as the internationalization strategies of service providers. Specifically, emphasis is placed on: service relationships across borders; methodological issues of international service marketing research; service internationalization and modes of entry; and new international services. Each chapter expands the conceptual context and consequences of internationalization. This collection of articles also serves as a point of departure for future research on international service marketing and the internationalization of services. In the tradition of the "Advances in International Marketing" series, each contribution offers extended conceptual development and a detailed discussion beyond what is typically offered in research papers. At the same time, practitioners should find critically relevant inspiration and ideas on how to define, implement, and evaluate their strategy and operations when delivering services across borders.
