The role of the executive assistant is to support and amplify the CEO in areas of responsibilities ranging from managing relationships with the board, speaking engagements, hiring and interviewing, reinforcing team culture, sales, and managing company operations. Managing such a diverse set of responsibilities will require excellent organization and time management skills, the ability to learn quickly, and impeccable written communication.
