What makes a great Managing Director?
The MD is the de-facto second in command to the CEO. The MD role is less strategic than that of the CEO and more operationally-focused.
MDs are key in ensuring the day-to-day operations of the business run smoothly and fellow directors have everything they need to perform their roles to the best of their abilities.
Because of this, cross-functional experience is an important asset for aspiring MDs. They will also be strong communicators, great team leaders and a visible presence within the organisation.
