CRO, CMO, COO: What are C-Level Fractional Services?

A Fractional CXO is an executive to help with in the area or subject matter that is most important to help advance your business objectives. These can range from CRO (Chief Revenue Officer), CMO (Chief Marketing Officer), COO (Chief Operating Officer), or CFO (Chief Financial Officer).

A CXO brings a hands-on approach to help develop and execute an in-depth strategy for your business. Your company gets executive experience without the full-time cost. Fully invested in the success, your Fractional CXO applies decades of experience to accelerate your results and help you scale, while gain a return on your investment.

The first step with your Fractional CXO will be to assess your current business goals, market conditions, company strengths and opportunities. From there, they will collaborate with you and your team on the execution plan. 

A Fractional CXO plays a focal role within your company. They provide leadership and direction, working hands with your team to make the adjustments to enable you to accelerate and scale. They work with the team to implement your updated strategies, help overcome roadblocks, and capitalize on opportunities.

If you’re evaluating a fractional CXO, you’re likely comparing the cost to a full-time hire. The trade-off usually comes down to leveraging a strategic senior executive on a fractional basis versus hiring a full time more junior director or manager. So, why would a company choose tractional fractional? It comes down to the experience and value that can be brought to your business.
