In all seriousness, the role can vary so significantly from one company to another, it's often hard to pin down a single definition. In my experience, I would say that one of the key responsibilities is seeing that general operations are meeting the defined targets so that the business can execute its short/ long term strategies.

Would you be the COO or work for one (office of the COO)?

Possibly be the COO. Role is open and flexible but includes building business, supporting across different operational areas, etc.
