The CFO is all about the cash rules everything around me (G), and the CIO is trying to make things work. Where does the CSO sit in all this?I like it when all the C-levels report to the CEO, then they get to figure it out and balance each other out. When C-levels report to anything other than the CEO, it spells trouble.
