Chief Marketing Technology Officer
Chris Spears is co-founder and chief marketing technology officer (CMTO) at Arke, as well as a Sitecore MVP.
As CMTO, he leads initial consulting efforts with clients to help them understand journey mapping and how the various journeys establish the foundation of their brand experience. As part of the leadership team at Arke, he also reviews and assesses new technology platforms, strategies, methodologies, and tangential partners — which all helps Arke better support its clients. / Chris’s Thinking
Arke leaders are a different breed. They’re experts in their respective disciplines, but technology generalists as well. Scratch the surface and you’ll find a string of shiny credentials. Distinctions like Sitecore MVP and experience with blue chip companies weave a common thread.
We connect the dots to see the big digital picture
What makes us unique is more than glittering resumes and impressive titles. It’s the shared courage to think holistically about every client we serve.

Mike Winburn’s history with Arke spans several years, as he and Chris Spears attended Georgia Tech together, studying computer science. Later, they worked together at Harry Norman Realtors and TBS, so it comes as no surprise that when Arke needed an expert in building custom BI platforms for company intranets, they approached Mike. / Mike’s Thinking
