The Chief Strategy Officer Group

An advisory group of the Strategy Committee, the Chief Strategy Officer Group acts as a “think tank” for the GSMA on strategic issues. The CSO Group generally assigns responsibility for execution to other appropriate groups, such as the Executive Management Committee or specialised operator task forces, although it may choose to retain an oversight role. The group is comprised of approximately 20 chief strategy officers, or their equivalent, from GSMA Board members or non-Board member companies.
