Editor’s Corner: C-Level

Good morning, folks! Today I’d like to talk a little bit about a term that you may have heard used to discuss the “higher-ups,” the “big cheeses,” the “grand poohbahs,” the “big kahunas,” or maybe the “head honchos” at a company. This term is “C-level” (not “sea-level,” as I first thought).

The C in “C-level” stands for “chief,” and in this case, it refers to the high-ranking executives within a company. The C-level executives are generally the most powerful, influential members of an organization, such as the chief executive officer (CEO), chief financial officer (CFO), and the chief operating officer (COO).

Here are a few more C-level titles for your perusal:

· CCO (chief compliance officer)

· CDO (chief data officer, chief digital officer)

· Chief IT architect

· Chief reputation officer

· Chief trust officer

· CHRO (chief human resources officer)

· CIO (chief information officer)

· CKO (chief knowledge officer)

· CLO (chief learning officer)

· CMO (chief marketing officer)

· CPIO (chief process and innovation officer)

· CPO (chief procurement officer)

· CRO (chief risk officer)

· CSO (chief strategy officer)

· CSO or CISO (chief security officer or chief information security officer)

· CTO (chief technology officer)

· CVO (chief visionary officer)

· CXO (chief experience officer)
