A more strategic chief communications officer?

 
Chief communications officers (CCOs) across Europe are taking on greater strategic roles, according to a new survey by Korn Ferry. In the 2013-2014 European Chief Communications Officer Survey, CCOs of large organisations with a pan-European and often global reach reported that a major part of their job is to ensure “operational excellence” as part of the senior leadership arsenal of talent and strategic skill sets. Reflecting the importance of this role, says Korn Ferry, the vast majority of CCOs (over 70 per cent) report to the CEOs of their organisations. Similarly, top communications executives in the US most commonly report to the CEO (43 per cent), and if not, to someone in the C-suite. The full report paints a detailed picture of the current scope of the CCO's remit: download your copy here.
