“We had an incredibly extensive talent search, and once I met Dawn, it was clear she was the right person for the job,” said Pearl Collings, CEO of Contently. “This role is essential for Contently – we needed a marketer who can guide other marketers across industries. Dawn has the perfect balance of creative skills and technical know-how to take us where we need to go next.”
DiLorenzo brings more than two decades of experience leading marketing teams at B2B technology companies like Epicor, Community Brands and Valogix.

“I wanted to partner with an industry leader, change the way marketers create, distribute and measure digital content,” DiLorenzo said. “As a marketer for over 20 years, I was also looking for an opportunity to champion and propel great marketing teams. Contently’s perspective on marketing strategy, technology and talent resonated with me in many ways. levels, and I bought into their mission as soon as I met Pearl.
The hiring comes at a critical time in content marketing. According to Gartner, marketing budgets increased year over year to 9.5% of total revenue. However, budgets are still where they were before 2020, and a majority of CMOs said they lacked in-house talent. How these companies invest in marketing technology, independent resources and content strategy will have a significant impact on their growth during a period of economic uncertainty.
“Since the early 2000s, marketers have struggled not only to produce and distribute content at scale, but also to measure and validate meaningful business results,” DiLorenzo said. “Contently does it all on one platform. My plan is to put Contently at the forefront of every enterprise marketing team’s strategy for years to come.”
