assistant to the executive board


Explanation:
My impression is that "management assistant" is used more often as a generic job description than a specific job title which is why I recommend

"assistant to the executive (board)"
or
"assistant to the management"

Cheerio,
Dierk

Assistant to the Executive Board


Explanation:
You definitely need to get more the idea of an assistant. This is job usally done by newly qualified business or economics graduates - they process data, draft reports etc for members of the board. The guy probably was not a Dr. when he was doing this job and should not be termed an advisor.
