Chief Operations Officer (COO)

Streamlining (daily) primary processes is what a Chief Operations Officer (COO) focuses on. As such, the COO plays a key role in the good operation of a company. From simplifying digitisation processes to delivering good customer service. Due to technological developments, the role is changing and growing, strengthening the strategic influence of a COO as a result.


The Chief Operations Officer helps structure the teams and determine work methods to enable the account and project management, as well as customer service, to perform well. Excellent management skills are key to be able to lead, inspire and support employees.
