Women have come a long way in the marketing and advertising field. There is no better example of this than our own "2013 CMOs to Watch" feature, which included superstars such as Cisco's Blair Christie, GE's Beth Comstock and Adobe's Ann Lewnes.
However, while there are more women in positions of power than at any time in history, that proverbial glass ceiling remains unbroken. It may have more cracks, but women still hold fewer than 24 percent of senior management roles worldwide and 22 percent in the U.S., according to Grant Thornton's annual report examining women in leadership. And women in marketing fare worse than that—only 11 percent of CMOs are women.
But, despite still having that steep hill to climb, women in B2B marketing and advertising continue to shine. These 10 picks for FierceCMO's "2014 Women to Watch" are trailblazers in B2B marketing field and do their jobs with much finesse, acumen and success. They aren't just great women marketers—they're great marketers, period.
