Business luminary and current host of CNBC’s Cleveland Hustles with LeBron James, B. Bonin Bough, has been revealing the future of marketing for the last fifteen years – breathing life into things we now take for granted, such as real-time marketing command centers (Gatorade Mission Control), and even large scale social media advertising programs (which he was the first to do as Mondelēz International’s Chief).
