Note: Nowadays, companies have resorted to using informal designations such as Chief Happiness Officer or Chief Awesomeness Officer – usually they have very limited roles (e.g. sending out email marketing campaigns or news regarding new offers from the company). Depending on their actual roles, these persons may or may not qualify as principal officers of the company. However, internal company policies for communicating with outsiders or media may be applicable.
