What is a CEO?

A CEO, or Chief Executive Officer, is the highest-ranking executive in a company, responsible for making major corporate decisions, managing overall operations, and being the primary point of communication between the corporate operations and the board of directors. They set the company’s strategy, vision, and culture, oversee financial performance, and guide organizational growth. As the public face of the company, they also represent the organization in public engagements, stakeholder meetings, and major negotiations. The CEO’s leadership is crucial in driving the company’s success, managing its resources, and ensuring its long-term sustainability in the market. Importantly, they set the tone for business culture and organisation models that massively influence success.  

What is a Virtual CEO?

A Virtual CEO, or V-CEO, is an experienced business leader who provides strategic guidance, leadership, and support to organizations, typically from a remote location. Rather than being a full-time, on-site executive, a V-CEO offers their expertise and insights on a flexible, as-needed basis. This means you get the benefits of seasoned leadership without the full-time executive price tag.

A Virtual CEO is often used re-energise business strategy or enable a pivot. They may be used in times of crisis to help recovery and establish a new leadership team. They’re also used simply to support existing executives when workloads are stretching people too thinly. As a V-CEO comes with a wealth of hands-on experience, often gained globally, they can also help set or change business culture to motivate and build the workforce needed for growth.
