Unstructured Podcast – Episode 128 – Christopher Lochhead is a legendary three time Silicon Valley CMO, author, and podcaster

Christopher Lochhead may have started out as a dyslexic paperboy from Montreal with Scottish roots, but where he ended up is really quite different. Lochhead started his first company at the tender age of 18, after having proved that school wasn't the right fit for him. It was his early mindset and dogged determination that would later lead him to become a chief marketing officer for the software juggernaut Mercury Interactive. Lochhead was also the founding CMO of the Internet consulting firm Scient and also served as the head of marketing at the CRM software firm Vantive. He has futhermore co-founded the marketing consulting firm LOCHHEAD and has been an advisor to over 50 venture-backed startups thus far. 

The former three-time Silicon Valley public company CMO and entrepreneur is also the co-author of two International bestsellers. Namely “Niche Down: How To Become Legendary By Being Different” (#1 Amazon bestseller) and “Play Bigger: How Pirates, Dreamers and Innovators Create and Dominate Markets.” Lochhead has become a master of category design and he continues to evangelize the fact that categories can be found everywhere. He firmly states that category must comes first and then the brand must come second. According to Lochhead, “category is the human filing system that we have, so we can relate to things and most importantly, value things.” You can also read more about the Brookings report Christopher mentioned in our Unstructured podcast interview.
