Explanation:
Junta Directiva

I got the first title out of the Alcaraz Varo and Hughes Diccio de Terminos economico, finanacieros y comerciales and would assume that the Presidente is the Board Pres.

An alternative option - if the context allows - would be to make the Chairman: Presidente de la Junta and the President: Director de la empresa, sociedad, compañía, as the case may be. This will depend on the context. Hope it helps

El Presidente del Directorio, o en su defecto, el Gerente General


Explanation:
En rigor de verdad, en la práctica el Presidente del Directorio (Chairman) y el Presidente de la Compañía (President) son la misma persona. Por eso opté por "Gerente General" que, operativamente, es la máxima autoridad de una empresa después del Presidente.

Explanation:
The Chairman is always the term by which teh Top Person of the Board of Directors is referred to --> hence es el Presidente de la Junta Directiva.

The President is probably teh CEO/the Chief Executive Officer/ the General manger / The (Managing) Director of the company (and probably a member of the Junta). These are the usual terms by which the top person (executive) of the company is referred to.

This is the most likely scenario, but you have to decide exactly what teh 2nd President is president of, from the context. The 1st one I'm certain of.

If there is a management Committee he/she is probably President of that but surely also the Managing Director of the company.

Thus my opinion is teh reverse of the submission above where I noted my diagreement.

El Presidente de la Junta Directiva, o en su defecto, el Presidente de la empresa/del Consejo Administrativo
