English translation:Chairman of the Board (of Directors) / Chief Operating Officer (COO)
Explanation:
In this context, "Operative" is a false cognate. It is never used in U.S./U.K. business titles.

Chairman of the Board and President


Explanation:
The Chief Officers (C.Information.O, C.Financial.O, C.Operations.O, etc) report to the C.E.O. (Chief Operating Officer), who reports to the President of the company. All the officers and the President are executives or high-level managers. The (Board of) Directors are the main stock owners of the company and do not perform management tasks. They rather set the main strategic issues of the company. The Chairman of the Board is the Presidente del Consejo y el Presidente Operativo is just the President. The Chief Operating Officer does not exist as a business title neither in US nor in UK.
