    Post Chief Executive/Managing Director/CEO

    Could someone please advise me the difference of the meaning/nuance among "chief executive", "managing director", and "chief executive officer"?

    I founded a law office and am wondering what title would be appropriate for being a top of a law office. Though there are several lawyers working for it, they are not partners, so I guess "managing partner" is not appropriate in this case.

    Thanks in advance.

    If you have a board of directors, the Managing Director is the head of the board. A CEO is another name for a CE. If you don't have directors, MD is not appropriate. I would suggest "Chief Executive".
