CEO is an acronym that is short for Chief Executive Officer. It usually refers to the head of a company, often considered the highest ranked person who is responsible for managerial decisions, and often, the fate of the company. The CEO is the main link between a company’s board of directors and the rest of the staff. Being a CEO is a high profile job. The CEO of Amazon is Jeff Bezos, who is a very powerful and wealthy man. The CEO of Facebook is Mark Zuckerberg. People criticize these CEO’s for having too much power, and too much sway over our lives. CEOs are often those people that were the primary entrepreneur behind an idea and a company that were instrumental in directing and managing the potential of the effort.
