Dell, No. 3 in the Internet Retailer Top 500 Guide has today lost it’s CMO to Austin-based user generated content powerhouse Bazaarvoice. Erin M. Nelson, who has been CMO at Dell since 2009 will leave that spot within the next few weeks to join BV as CMO, a spot which was most recently held by Sam Decker, who was also at Dell, but not as CMO, prior to joining BV as “the third founder”.
CEO of Bazaarvoice , Brett Hurt speaks highly of Nelson in this recent Internet Retailer article/release re: the new CMO:

Hurt has mentioned IPO in several recent articles. This CMO move seems to help mold his C-suite to be more ready for a big public play.
“Rumor has it that Dell has told Mitch Caplan of Y&R to leave all digital work alone. Mitch apparently gave up and called Schematic. This leaves Enfatico/Y&R to try to salvage anything of print and broadcast.”

I know it’s just a simple typo (a very funny one) and, as someone just pointed out to me via an un-published comment, I had a typo in the title of this post.
Thanks anonymous commenter. Thanks for catching my typo and for calling me a dumbass.
I will refrain from calling you anything as I have no idea who you are and am not sure as to what level of dumbass you may or may not be.
