Years ago, the CCO was not seen as a facilitator or help to the business. Rather, the CCO was seen as an obstructionist role to tell the business “no.”
Today, the CCO role is more of a business partnership role, educator, and facilitator. The skills that companies look for now support a collaborative role. Companies are asking candidates for CCO about how they collaborate and lead. They are not just focusing on the candidates’ knowledge of regulatory subjects.
