  • Chief Information Officer (CIO).
  • Chairman of the Board (COB).
  • Chief Operations Officer (COO).
  • Chief Risk Officer (CRO).
  • •Chief Technology Officer (CTO).
  • and so on…
To these management positions can be added the COB, which is an abbreviation of the “Chairman of the Board”. A synonym to C-suite is C-level.
