Executive director

  (Redirected from Executive Director)

An executive director is a member of the board of directors of a company or organisation who oversees a specific department within the organization such as Marketing, Finance, Production and IT. Being an executive within an organization, the executive director has the responsibility to ensure all employees within his/her department are achieving the objectives which have been set and must also make daily decisions within the department.[1]

Confusion can arise because the words executive and director occur both in this title and thus it is also used, in a completely different sense, to refer to a chief executive officer (CEO).
