A chief executive officer (CEO) is the highest-ranking executive in a company so it is obvious that it is the highest paying position. They make strategies and have many responsibilities towards the company. It would not be wrong to say that it is the CEO that decides the good or bad for any company.

Making corporate decisions, and ensuring effective mobilization of resources is the major responsibility of a CEO. They even look after the overall operation of the firm. The CEO acts as a bridge between the board of directors and the general firm. They often hold the position on the board of directors as well and help in making important decisions.

In most companies, the CEO supervises and directs all the other managers in the firm as in Chief Financial officer, Chief Human Resource Officer, and so on.

However, their responsibilities and role differ from company to company. Depending upon the type of company, the number of staff there, the size of the company, and the objectives of the company, the CEO will have to perform many functions. They assign responsibilities to various departments and look after the proper functioning of all the departments. Since they have many critical responsibilities, it is obvious that the pay is quite good. The pay of the CEO is the highest and it is very evident, especially in the banking field.
