James, (or Jay?), My apologies for the name confusion. (I've even seen other mails of yours, now that I think about it, where you've told people your name is not John!) You're right about the COO reporting TO the CEO, but I am intrigued by the CJO title. I think I may even suggest it, would suit a few people I've worked with extremely well......... Anyway, thanks for the discussion.

If You have me confused with John Carr or John Earl, then I'm honored. I've used my initials throughout my career, I ferget I have a name...;-) (Uhhhhh.........? Oh! yeah!! James "Jay" Toran (whereby "jt")...;-) | I'm still a bit confused, but it kinda' sounds like what we'd call a Chief | Operating Officer or something like that. The Chief Operating Officer would (afaik) report TO the CEO. I've worked in Retail most-a my career, and there's usually a GMM (General Manager, Merchandising) or VP-Merchandising or someone who also reports to the CEO. In companies where IT has a lot of clout, the CIO/CTO/CJO (Chief Information Officer/Chief Technology Officer/Chief Janatorial Officer, or whatever title is used...;-) also reports to the CEO. In some companies I've seen, other Heads of Departments might also report directly to the CEO, if they want involved in more day-to-day stuff. | All public companies here have a | board of directors headed by a chairman (usually part time) and a | CEO/Managing Director running reporting straight to the board. (Managing | Director was more in use in the eighties, CEO seems to be more popular | since the nineties). Yeah. I've noticed a lot of not-for-profits are headed by an "Executive Director", but even many of them are switching to "CEO". | Smaller companies, or sometimes divisions | within large | companies, would be headed by a general manager. (Probably similar to what | you'd call a president I guess). Yeah. | | Anyway, it sounds like we just use different terminology for the same | thing. | | Thanks for the response, I was just curious. That's for SURE...! Just different lingo and similar/different ways for businesses to organize... (And my pleasure...!
