A chief executive officer or CEO is the highest-ranking official in a company, whose essential duties incorporate settling on major corporate decisions, dealing with the general operations and assets of a company, acting as the central point of communication between the board of directors and corporate activities and being the public face of the organization. A CEO is chosen by the board and company investors.
A CEO's job differs from one company to another. It is hugely dependant on the company size, culture, and corporate structure.
In huge corporations, CEOs normally manage only with very high-level strategic choices and those that direct the company's overall development.
In smaller companies, CEOs regularly are more hands-on and associated with everyday functions. CEOs can set the tone, vision, and the culture of their companies.
On account of their frequent dealings with the public, in some cases the CEOs of big corporations become well known.
