CRO / CCO
A CRO / CCO brings the commercial facing functions together under a single point of leadership, shapes the customer strategy, drives profitable customer behaviour, grows the customer base, revenues and profits and works with the CEO to communicate the company vision and use this as part of their long-term strategy for creating new opportunities and markets.
