    Re: the former or a former

    John, the former president of Spain,

    John, the CEO of WhizBang Inc.,...

    "John, the former CEO of WhizBang Inc.,..." implies that there before the present CEO, there has been only one other CEO, and that was John.

    Since, this is unlikely, then John is just one of the former CEOs.
    Hence,
    "John, a former CEO of WhizBang Inc.,..."
