A hyper-growth ambitious group of companies has successfully built numerous strategic business units across different sectors in multiple Pan African locations. With a mission to become the number one in their space and to push their expansion further across Africa, they are looking to appoint a dynamic Chief Operating Officer to drive excellence in operations across the company and its various entities.
Their COO will be part of our clients C-suite and would be responsible for scaling revenue lines up from tens of millions of dollars to hundreds of millions of dollars in annual revenue. Serving as the right hand to the CEO, the COO will come with a vision for flawless execution, discipline and consistent repeatability across the cross-functional teams. The role is split into 2 verticals, the COO can expect to spend 50% of their time in a more traditional 360’ COO role and the other 50% will be spent working with the General Managers (CEOs) of Strategic Business Units, using world-class operational models to drive operational maturity across project management, business operations, customer services, sales and product implementation.
The ideal candidate would be innovative, with a good tolerance for ambiguity, a passion for mentorship and the ability to cut through complex issues and hit the problem areas with lightning speed. In what can be described as an extremely ‘data-driven’ environment their COO will come from a strong technical background with experience leading operations teams within technology companies.
