Operations and Supply Chain

Operating officers, across operations, strategy, supply chain or corporate function leadership, have increasingly grown in stature.  

As organizations go through periods of growth and transformation, we have seen operations leaders elevated to Exco and Board level status. Contributing to the c-suite agenda with a credible voice, we’re seeing COOs and operating officers add more value than ever before.   

The transition of this role over recent years has, in many cases, led to the COO becoming the trusted right hand of the CEO – often leading the execution of company strategy whilst ensuring the business continues to operate effectively and efficiently. Whether it be a FTSE 50, Fortune 500 or a small private family office, the COO and operational leadership is key to business success. 

Over the last 20 years we have built an extensive track record working with CEO’s and boards to ensure they have the best leadership teams in place, whether it be a COO, Head of Operations, Head of Supply Chain, Head of Procurement or Head of CRES. Our track record and vast experience in this space means we understand how the demands of these roles vary by sector and what success really looks like.
