FORTUNE -- Why it's hot: Simply having a Facebook and Google (GOOG) ad plan is not enough. Now the digital strategy leader must find, manage, and champion what's new -- before everyone else does.

What you need: A digital background is key. Consulting skills can help with the C-suite, and analyzing pitches with a VC's eye is a plus. A communications background can help you advocate.
