What about verkställande direktör?

I suppose it's arguable, but I'd say no. If we were to talk about a corporate president, we'd probably just say chefen - that is, "the boss".

Also, we pretty much always use VDn rather than verkställande direktören. Many a Swedish CEO has presented themselves as "I'm the VD of this company." :)

Thanks! Makes sense that you would want to shorten it of course. I just wasn't sure which one is more common or if there was a slight difference in meaning/application.

That would be jättestor I assume.
