C-Suite Meet Elizabeth Rutledge, Chief Marketing Officer, American Express

How does a ninth-grade biology teacher reinvent herself to become the first woman chief marketing officer for one of the world’s largest financial services companies? It took more than an open mind, aptitude, and a well-placed internship for Elizabeth Rutledge to propel herself into a C-suite role at American Express. In this conversation, Elizabeth talks about her journey from Princeton, to a high school teaching role, to the fourth largest card network in the world.
