This answer was rated:

My corporate by-laws state I have the right to add or subtract corporate officers. My title in the by-laws is President. I want to be able to use either the title of President or CEO. We are a small S-Corp. We are in the State of Maryland

Legalinfomd :

Hello. Will respond to your question.

Legalinfomd :

Are you the sole stockholder and director?

Customer:

Yes

Legalinfomd :

Then you can appoint yourself either "President", "CEO" or "President and CEO". All you would need to do is prepare and sign informal action of the director electing yourself as President and CEO.
