blog details: Different companies have different titles for their employees, whether senior management or C-suite. So understanding the roles and hierarchy can be confusing and daunting.

VP vs Director
Typically a director heads a department or a vertical. They lead managers who have teams under them. They are also usually restricted to a particular area of function in larger companies, while smaller companies might have a general director who leads managers of all departments since there might not be multiple managers in each division to manage. But being on the ‘board of directors’ has a completely different meaning. That kind of director is above the vice president and the C-suite as well.
