Director refers to a rank in management. A director is a person who leads, or supervises a certain area of a company, a program, or a project.[1] Companies that use this title often have many directors spread throughout different categories (e.g. director of human resources).[2] The director usually reports directly to a Vice President or to the CEO. In companies with advanced ranks within director, the next rank is usually Senior Director, followed by Executive Director. Large organizations also sometimes have Assistant Directors. Director commonly refers to the lowest level of executive in an organization, but many large companies are designating titles of Associate Directors more frequently.
