  6. I don t think the author has clarified this properly, the author mentions the MD is responsible to the board of directors but the C.E.O. isn’t, i don’t somehow think this is right.

    There is no difference between an M.D. or a C.E.O. both have to be part of the day to day operations of the business and both are responsible to the board of directors.

    C.E.O. is used by America more and M.D. in Britain.

  7. I thought as much. thank you for this verifications

  8. information is very helpful.

    a lot of thanks………………
