Chief operating officer

A chief operating officer (COO), also called the chief operations officer, is one of the highest-ranking executive positions in an organization, comprising part of the "C-Suite". The COO is responsible for the daily operation of the company,[1] and routinely reports to the highest-ranking executive, usually the chief executive officer (CEO).[2] The COO is usually the second in command at the firm, especially if the highest-ranking executive is the Chairman and CEO.
