FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS/What is a director or C-Level?/


What is a director or C-Level?

It is an officer of the company who has a corporate mandate by default, and possibly a contract of employment for specific functions that he has within the company.

The most common examples of C-level are Chief Technology Officer (CTO), CMO (Chief Marketing Officer), CFO (Chief Finance Officer), CLO (Chief Legal Officer) or GC,(General Counsel).

They may receive remuneration for exercising their mandate as a manager of the company and possibly also have an employment contract including a salary. Before providing for compensation under any of these options, get close to an expert who will tell you the best solution and the consequences if you are registered with Pôle Emploi in France (French unemployment agency).
