Corporate[]

In a corporation, the president is the second highest ranking officer, after the Chairman of the Board. They are elected by the Board of Directors to apply their orders with overall authority over the corporation. Thus, they are the only person able to act individually (unlike the Board members who must have a quorum) over all the corporation (unlike CEO, CFO, COO, CTO, CIO and managers, who only runs a given domain or branch). It is common to have the same person acting as President and Chief Executive Officer. The President could also be a Director, if not the Chairman of the Board.

In some countries like France, a corporate President is always the CEO as well (note that in French, the Chairman of the Board is titled "Président", the President/CEO is the "Directeur Général")
