Fractional Chief Sales Officer

What is a Chief Sales Officer/Chief Revenue Officer/Sales Director (CSO/CRO)?

A CSO or CRO is a senior executive responsible for all revenue generation processes in an organisation. They ensure the alignment of all revenue-related activities, from sales and marketing to customer service, with the company’s growth strategy. While a CSO typically focuses on sales strategies and execution, a CRO has a broader remit, overseeing the entire customer lifecycle and ensuring a cohesive approach to driving revenue. Their role is pivotal in setting sales goals, ensuring the sales team’s performance, and implementing effective sales methodologies.
