The executives

There are different executives in an organization, and their titles vary depending on the company. We’ll discuss some of the most common executives.

One thing to keep in mind is that these are the officers of the company, which has some specific ramifications—especially with companies whose stock is publicly traded—since they are considered the ultimate insiders. For example, they can’t sell stock except for particular windows of time, as governed by the SEC.

Since the officers of the company give the orders, they are also the ones who ultimately need to answer for any major blunders. They’re supposed to know everything that’s going on. These are high-stress jobs.
