What's the difference between the titles of "CEO" "President" "Managing Director" and "General Manager"?

I know that there are some differences between American and British business terminology.

    Generally, in the U.S., CEO and President can be quite similar. In the case where there are two senior executives that share responsibilities in large companies or closely held family companies the CEO is usually more senior than the President. Outside the U.S. the term Managing Director or "MD" is used. General Manager is often used to describe any senior manager that has Profit and Loss or P&L responsibility. This might even be of a division of a larger company.
