As highlighted here before, we have been working on launching a forum for COOs. We have received expressions of interest from several representatives of member firms. We are delighted to say that we have now reached the stage of getting this forum off the ground, thanks to Pav Wakem, COO for Investec’s real estate business, and Xavier Vanhoy, COO for Wells Fargo Bank’s real estate finance, who will co-chair the group.

We will gather the group for a first, fairly informal, gathering on 11 July, when we will discuss the future shape of the forum and then network over drinks. We hope that this forum will be the start of building a network/community for individuals that have COO-type responsibilities to connect with each other regularly and exchange ideas, experiences and practices in an informal setting.It is not too late to join, so if you are interested in participating in this forum, please email David.   (NB. The COO role can be wide ranging and encompassing a number of areas, so the forum would be relevant to individuals with roles that include operations, finance, IT, compliance and risk management).
