What is the definition of CXO?

We get this question a lot; usually, our clients and prospects ask us what CXO means. Here we are going to provide information on why this term is part of our corporate name and what it means.

Back in 2006, we were brainstorming names for this new company and at the time, our only services were IBM Cognos Business Intelligence (now IBM Cognos Analytics) consulting and development projects. We were providing these services to executives across multiple business areas, from HR to production up to the Executive level. So we ended up with a few name options, including CXO Business Intelligence Corporation. It was a long name, but it captured who we were when we started. We decided to adopt CXO since it was a term that defines ‘executives from all business areas.’

CXO refers to all the C-Level or Executive designations in a company. In most organizations, senior management roles typically have titles that begin with “Chief” and end with “Officer,” creating what is often called the “C-suite” or “CXO,” where “X” is a variable that represents a process, division or area.

A corporate title or business title is given to all resources in a company, including executives, to show and help identify what duties and responsibilities they have at their companies. CXO is a generic term for any corporate officer, and some of the most common titles are:
