Chief Operating Officer - Leiter des operativen Geschäfts
Explanation:
I agree with Alemminger that translating this business title is unnecessary. However, if you need a German version, take a look at this hit:

1. "ehemaliger Leiter des operativen Geschäfts (COO) der von Roll AG."

2. Here is also a very useful site with explanations of various other business titles:

COO = Der Chief Operating Officer ist der Assistent des Chefs und für die operationelle Seite des Unternehmens zuständig.

Betriebsvorstand


Explanation:
Zahn, Bank u- Börsenwesen is quite good on this.
Chief Executive Office = Vorstandsvorsitzender
Chief Financial Officer = Finanzvorstand
Operations = Betrieb

The conclusion would be that
Chief Operating Officer = Betriebsvorstand
