Director (business)

Director (business)

Director refers to a rank in management. A director is a person who leads, or supervises a certain area of a company, a program, or a project[1]. Usually companies, which use this title commonly have large numbers of people with the title of director with different categories (e.g. director of human resources[2]). Depending on factors like the size or structure of a company, the director usually reports directly to a Vice President or to the CEO. When there are more than one director, they are sometimes ranked starting from the top as Executive Director, Senior Director, and then Director. In large organizations there might also be appointed Assistant Directors. Director commonly denotes the lowest level of executive in an organization, however many large companies are increasingly designating titles of Associate Directors.
