COO Secrets - Thish Nadesan

Every day we talk to candidates who are aspiring to become the next great COO in the industry, and we always get asked – “what skills do I need to become a COO?” and “what are companies looking for in a COO candidate”?

Rather than us doing all the talking, we thought we’d go directly to the source and talk to some of the most successful COOs to hear their advice.

Today, we’re launching our new COO Secrets series, with the incredible Thish Nadesan, who is COO at the VC backed FinTech Cleo AI.

Prior to becoming a COO, Thish spent 4.5 years as a Strategy Consultant at Bain & Company, where she specialised in Financial Services and Private Equity. To find out how she became COO, why she joined Cleo AI and her advice for the next generation of COOs, simply hit play below.
