What is an Executive Director | Executive Manager?

An executive manager or executive director or CEO all have similar general responsibilities for the department, strategic business unit or corporation they are leading.
For their role in the board architecture, see: corporate governance.
For the impressive list of their responsibilities, see: Chief Executive Officer.
That's why the unwritten part of the executive job description often requires long hours, including evenings and weekends, and balancing family and personal obligations with work needs. Not easy.
