Weird question - i know a number of folks who worked in generic marketing or sales type roles who found their way to companies like faang amex/visa, etc, doing similar sales or marketing work. Lately, as they’ve been promoted, they now call them themselves things like “strategy lead” or “growth lead” or “strategy director” - are marketing and sales roles really pivoting into strategy and growth as we here think of them, or are those just fancy titles that still mean sales and marketing?
