there is also this executive and non-executive directors....no difference?
Executive directors are directors who are also employees of the company. That means they draw a salary as well as director's fees.
Non-executive directors are not employed by the company. They are not on the payroll and are paid only director's fees.

Does it really mean that executives have a better and clearer career path towards becoming a manager?
No. It means that the title has little meaning in terms of career progression. What matters is the size of your responsibilities and how much you're paid ie. how much you are worth to an employer. The company can call you CEO (Chief Executive Officeboy) if they want... but you're still just an officeboy.

see public bank founder...nothing is imposible..exec and non-exec today are the same today...
If people in this forum are the same calibre as PBB's founder... well, they won't be in this forum in the first place.
I believe in positive reinforcement, but to think that you can do something because ultra-exceptional persons like Teh Hong Piow or Bill Gates or Lim Goh Tong can... that's just daydreaming. They were the best of the very best. Literally 1 in a million. Gates is probably 1 in a billion. You are, at most, average... ie. Impossible.This post has been edited by seantang: Apr 22 2010, 01:41 PM
