CEO Duality

   

Definition: CEO Duality is the situation when a Chief Executive Officer (CEO), besides running the corporation at the highest level, also holds the position of the Chairman of the Board. This phenomenon can only be found in One-tier Boards. In simpler wording, it's when a firm's CEO wears 2 hats: the CEO-hat and the Chairman of the Board-hat. CEO Duality obviously affects the company in question in multiple ways, which may be positive or negative.
