No Place To Hide

The role of the banking 

Chief Operating Officer

By Maurice Evlyn-Bufton

There is no definitive answer to the question 'what does a chief operating officer, the COO, actually do?' Every COO's role is different, and more so in banking. It is to understand this exclusivity that Maurice Evlyn-Bufton has written the series of papers that are brought together in this book. 

If you are an established COO, aspiring to be one, seeking to hire one, or are 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.

No Place to Hide was published in 2017. All proceeds have been - and will continue to be - donated to the following three charities:
