What is a CEO?

He/She is the top exec in any given company, but what do they do in the age of endless numbers of c-execs in each board?


With a salary usually around six figures, chief executive officers (CEO) are the highest ranking person in a company.

This person is responsible for running the whole business in a holistic and fair manner, working and putting to work overall strategies that will drive business growth.

They head the company’s board, which can be made of a wide selection of other c-levels, but they ultimately hold the most influential view on major decisions.

Due to their central position, they are also regarded as the bridge between all the other board members.
