Ok, I'll clear it up.

I know some CEOs. Good ones. They run their shit and they run it well. They have experts below them, but happen to know more than them. Yea, they don't know everything, because a lot of companies have legal and engineering departments and few CEOs have both of that... those may be some exceptions

CEOs right down to even low level managers all read numbers given to them. Something given to them does not preclude them from being experts who can grab the bull by the horns and make something happen.

However, in the very post you are responding to I mentioned that you don't have to be an expert of X to be CEO of Company X. I'm saying, however, that a lot of great CEOs know more about what their company is doing and are more hands on than you're alluding to.

That's been my experience for with the CEOs I know as well as those I've worked for.
