Chief Executives - Trendlines article

To quote Harry Truman—when it comes to running an organization, the “buck stops” with the chief executive. Chief Executives provide the toplevel, overall direction for a company or public sector organization, usually under the guidelines of a board of directors or similar governing body. They are the individuals responsible for planning, directing, or coordinating an organization’s activities at the highest management level.

Chief executives may operate under a wide variety of titles—chief executive officer, chief operating officer, general manager, president, vice president, school superintendent, county administrator, and mayor. Of course, the responsibilities (and pay) of high-level executives depend on their organization’s size. Top executives not only direct the overall organization, but also may be responsible for implementing strategies and setting the overall direction of a certain area of the company or organization and are under intense pressure to succeed. Depending on the organization, success may mean earning higher profits, providing better service, or attaining fundraising and charitable goals.
