Is CEO the same thing as President?
- Joseph HLv 41 decade agoFavorite Answer
CEOs work on the company's long-term strategies and strategic partnerships, while presidents deal with day-to-day operations and bottom-line performance. The CEO handles overall strategy while the president's responsibilities are more managerial.
Presidents answer to CEOs. According to Investopedia.com, presidents often hold the title of Chief Operating Officer, or COO. The COO is responsible for executing the policy of the CEO and board of directors. So, in short, it's a "vision thing" versus a "nuts and bolts thing."
