Top 10 COOs in India 2023

December 29, 2022/ Aditi Pathak / Chief Operating Officer / 0 comments

The daily administrative and operational tasks of a company are managed by the chief operating officer (COO), a senior executive. The chief operating officer (COO), who is regarded as second in the chain of command, often reports directly to the chief executive officer (CEO).

The CEO is more concerned with long-term objectives and the overall outlook for the firm, whereas the COO is primarily focused on carrying out the company’s business plan in accordance with the defined business model. In other words, the CEO creates the plans, and the COO carries them out.

For instance, a CEO may request more quality control when a company’s market share declines in order to improve the company’s standing with clients. In this scenario, the COO might carry out the CEO’s directive by directing the human resources division to increase the number of quality control employees. Initiating the deployment of new product lines is another potential responsibility for the COO, who may also be in charge of marketing, production, and R&D.

Here is the list of Top 10 COO’s in India –
