9. Sales Vice President
A VP of Sales is usually a very experienced and excellent salesman. First and foremost they are in charge of delivering revenue. This could be defined as cash, growth, market share or profits. Whatever it is they need to deliver on key metrics to show that they are doing their jobs and helping the company achieve its objectives.
