What Exactly Is A Chief Growing Officer?
Between daily naps, poops, and cries, the incoming CGO job duties will include a hectic and demanding schedule of crawling, walking, wobbling, walking, and possibly running. The baby boss will be required to “eat tasty and nutritious baby food products” and appear on the brand’s social media platforms throughout the year. As Gerber put it, the CGO will “help make big kid decisions on what little ones everywhere need to grow and thrive.”
Essentially, the Gerber CGO sounds like a mini social media influencer who only works in between nap time.
"Our Chief Growing Officer's adorable roles and responsibilities are sure to make Gerber's 2021 Photo Search a year like NO other and provide executive leadership new inspiration to help babies thrive,” Mohini Joshi, Gerber’s vice president of marketing, said in the press release.
Gerber has made history in recent years with its selections. Last year’s, Gerber named Magnolia Earl 2020’s spokesbaby, the first adopted baby chosen. And in 2019, the title belonged to the adorable Kairi Yang, the brand's first baby of Hmong descent. So with fingers crossed and cute baby photos aplenty, 2021’s Gerber spokesbaby could be yours!
