CEOs of companies often feel that they are unable to accomplish everything that needs to get done. This may include important tasks, functions, and relationships that aren’t being managed due to lack of bandwidth. If you feel overwhelmed by trying to do it all, it’s time for you to consider hiring a part-time or interim Chief Operating Officer.

Your role as CEO is as the architect responsible for creating and executing the company vision. Hiring a COO as the facilitator of this vision allows you to stay focused on things that matter the most while the COO makes sure day-to-day tasks get completed.

With locations in San Diego, Orange County and San Francisco, Optima offers comprehensive interim chief financial officer and fractional COO services throughout all of California.
