Importance of CEOs: The Chief Executive Officer provides leadership for all aspects of the company's operations with an emphasis on long-term goals, growth, profit, and return on investment. The CEO is responsible for making major corporate decisions, managing overall operations, and setting the company's strategic direction. They are accountable to the board of directors or stakeholders of the company and are often the public face of the organization. The CEO is the top operational decision-maker within an organization, but they report to the Board of Directors
Roles & Skills Required: A CEO is responsible for the overall success and failure of the company. Along with it, CEOs are in charge of crucial corporate choices like unionization, business restructuring, or capital allocation. The Board of Directors, a group of individuals chosen by the company's shareholders to represent them, holds the CEO accountable for performing his duties. Even with the presence of a Chief Financial Officer in a company, the CEO still has to make financial decisions. The CEO is in charge of creating annual budgets for capital allocation that take into account variables and the desired valuation for the year. The CEOs estimate projected costs, income, and profitability for the following year when creating the annual budgets.
