Chief executives and CEO's are business leaders who manage the entire organisational ecosystem. Most began their careers in accounting & finance, sales and marketing or operations.
This is a well paid career path due to the nature of the work, but it calls for significant time committments and requires fantastic networking capabilities, often forged long term.
Management types are expected to be strongly in demand in the coming 5- 10 years, especially as baby boomers start to retire. Over 60,000 chief executives and managing directors are employed as of November 2010 and many of these staff are getting older.
Business leaders typically dont enter the workplace expecting to become management material - they typically rise through the ranks as a result of being great at their previous roles, while also demonstating leadership capabilities.
