Publicly and privately held for-profit corporations give corporate titles or business titles to company officials to identify their job. Many colleges and universities also use corporate titles. Some places require corporations to have certain officers such as president, secretary, and treasurer. The top executives in senior management are usually the chief executive officer (CEO), chief operations officer (COO), and chief financial officer (CFO).
