Fractional Chief Operations Officer

What is a Chief Operations Officer (COO)?

A COO, or Chief Operations Officer, is a senior executive responsible for managing the day-to-day operations of an organisation. They ensure that business operations are efficient and effective, aligning with the company’s strategic goals. Their remit often spans multiple departments, from production and procurement to logistics and customer service.
