Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

What are the duties of an executive director?

The Executive Director oversees the administration, management and strategy of a business. As members of the Board of Directors they direct the development of the business, usually manage a department of the business and are responsible for the business’s growth.

Is an executive director a full time employee?

An Executive Director does not need to be a full-time employee. Many of their responsibilities can be managed on a part-time basis. It is not always necessary for a business to have a director in all the time and some jobs can be done with less regular input.

What is expected of an executive director?

An Executive Director will partake in business strategy, create business plans, oversee day-to-day activities (often of a specific department), improve growth and performance, set company culture, and report to the Board on their departments.
