ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the roles of chief executive officers (CEO) and board chairs. It is said that a CEO is assigned to lead a company's management, while the board chair is responsible for directing the board. It is claimed that when a CEO also serves as a board chair, the board's functions of assessing the executive's performance and replacing him are being compromised.
