The mission of the Vice President of Operations is to build and execute a scalable business growth plan for 10x revenue over the next five years. Strategic planning and regular evaluation of the required people, technology, and systems for growth are critical to the success of the organization. Reinforcing a results oriented, fast-paced culture, accompanied with training and systems, will drive success.
The ideal Vice President of Operations (VPO) is a fluent strategic planner and day to day operator, capable of long term forecasting with a bias for action. The VPO has a mindset of continuous performance improvement, proactively training the entire organization on SOPs for best in class service. He/she must be a “coach” of both direct reports and “culture champion” for all Team Members in order to drive change initiatives and adoption of corporate strategy. The VPO is a high level executor, capable of leading multi-phase initiatives and achieving quantifiable results through others.
The VPO identifies critical areas of improvement across all functions of the business using data and financial insight. To drive organic growth, the VPO will oversee the shared services department of IT, HR, R&D, Internal Communication & Events, as well as facilitate strategic planning sessions for leadership. To drive growth through acquisition, VPO will lead external due diligence and integration of any new business lines. The VPO translates the “how” and “when” of the vision for all to see a clear path to success.
