Chief Executive Officer (CEO)


The CEO, or chief executive officer, in a company is essentially the highest ranking manager or professional. This job is best defined by the many hats the CEO wears in operating the business and communicating with various company stakeholders. To achieve this position, you typically either need to start your own business, or work your way up through the management ranks of another for-profit or nonprofit organization.
