About No Place to Hide


There is no definitive answer to the question, ‘What does a Chief Operating Officer, the COO, actually do?’ Every COO’s role is unique, and more so in banking.

It is to understand this exclusivity that Maurice Evlyn-Bufton has written the series of papers that have been brought together in this newly published book.

If you are an established COO, aspiring to be one, seeking to hire one or generally interested in the subject of executive management and leadership, this book offers an informed analysis of one of the most important and yet largely misunderstood leadership roles within banking today.

Background

 

In 2014, Maurice Evlyn-Bufton wrote an article investigating the evolving role of the Chief Control Officer (‘Defining the Indefinable, the role of the Chief Control Officer’), which was at the time a new phenomenon. He invited twenty-five COOs from within his network and all twenty-five turned up to debate his paper; an indication as to the interest in the subject itself.

This initial event evolved into ongoing quarterly forums held in New York, London and Toronto, and hosted by the participating banks themselves, entitled ‘The Markets’ COO’ and ‘The 1LoD Business, Risk and Control’ forums.
