    Yea, pretty much a you don't want to make him mad if you like your job guy. CEO is usually the Founder or relative of the Founder.

    A chief executive officer (CEO) or chief executive is the highest-ranking corporate officer, administrator, corporate administrator, executive, or executive officer in charge of total management of a corporation, company, organization, or agency, reporting to the board of directors. In internal communication and press releases, many companies capitalize the term and those of other high positions, even when they are not proper nouns.

    CEO is the guy at the top of a company who gets paid large sums even when his company does horrible. If he screws up bad enough they pay him a few million to leave.

    Not in the majority of the cases, you can be the founder of the company and not be the CEO or related to the person who started the company.

    The CEO does hold unlimited rights. Who ever owns the most stake in the company controls it. A CEO may just be a hired person with 0% controlling interest in the company. In this case they would be just paid maybe a salary.
