The Chief Supply Chain Officer (CSCO) is a position that has always been critical to a company’s success. Today, that has never been more true; the ability to bring products to market quickly and efficiently—combined with global shocks such as COVID-19, rising customer expectations, and the digital revolution—has put the CSCO at the center of a company’s strategy. At the same time, the role of the CSCO is shifting and becoming more complex, with many competing priorities. At Egon Zehnder, we have conducted more than 1,000 supply chain searches in the past five years. In order to better understand the responsibilities and concerns of this position, we decided to conduct a global survey of today’s CSCOs.
