Acronyms: CAO, CEO, CFO, CIO, COO and CTO

These acronyms stand for chief managing positions in a company. A person holding such a position can be considered as a Chief Managing Officer (CMO). Now you may guess the meaning of the acronyms by replacing the word Managing by a word describing an activity or department critical to the success of a company:

CAO: Chief Advertising Officer
CEO: Chief Executive Officer
CFO: Chief Financial Officer
CIO: Chief Information Officer
COO: Chief Operating Officer
CTO: Chief Technology Officer

Of course, it doesn't stop here. CSO, for example, can refer to a Chief Strategy Officer, Chief Security Officer, or Chief Sourcing Officer. And who hasn't heard of a Chief Disinformation Officer (CDO) or a Chief Vacationing Officer (CVO)?
