Who is the CEO?

Chief Executive Officer (CEO) is the senior manager in the company whose main responsibilities include the development and implementation of high-level strategies, the making of major corporate decisions, the management of all operating activities and company resources. He/she acts as a link between the board of directors and corporate management. The Chief Executive Officer is often a member of the board of directors and in some cases even its Chairman.

There are also other names of the CEO post, for example, the President or the Managing Director. The role of the CEO may differ significantly from company to company, depending on size and organizational structure of an enterprise.

In small organizations, the CEO often plays a leading role in the company's activities making many business decisions, even lower-level ones such as hiring full-time employees. However, in larger enterprises, the CEO deals only with the high-level strategy and the direction of overall company’s development. Most other tasks are delegated to managers and departments.

Emeka Emuwa gained a lot of experience during his 25 years with Citibank. Of course, Union Bank had to offer a truly tempting labor environment to make Emuwa move into their organization and transform it into something new and better. The company almost collapsed in 2009 and was rebuilt in many aspects thanks to Emuwa’s efforts.

Perhaps you have noticed that the First Bank wasn't mentioned in this list. This is due to the fact that at the time of the rating compiling there was no available information about the wages of its CEO Adesola Kazeem Adeduntan. Relying on the known data, one can conjecture that he receives about the same sum as the Union Bank CEO.
