What are Corporate Officers?

Corporate officers are tasked with managing the day-to-day operations of a corporation, as set forth in such company’s bylaws. The board of directors of a company appoints officers and officers typically serve purely at the pleasure of the board (meaning they can be removed for any or no reason). Subject to fiduciary duties, the officers must always act in the corporation’s best interest and can be liable in the event the officer breaches his or her duties.
