deputy advisor


Explanation:
deputy or appointed advisor

I don't think you are referring to an attorney, but if you are, then the correct spelling would be appointed "counsel"

Chief Executive Officer


Explanation:
The "Consejero Delegado" is the "Head Honcho" of Spanish corporations, even if literally translated it may mean "Advisor Delegate" or the like. In addition to actually having heard it used in context, etc., please see below for a mentioned of a solid Spanish (from Spain) - English Business Dictionary

context - business, politics, social work?


Explanation:
Palomo is right, if the context is business. This person is literally 'delegated' by the Board of Directors/Management, to take executive charge of the affairs of the company. Depending on the country/size of the company, He/She is thus:

Chief Executive Officer
Managing Director
General Manager

However there is another possibility, if the context is politics, esp. municipal. Consejero is 'councillor'
and I would suggest translating as 'Delegate(d) Councillor'.

I don't think this is legal. Vaguely possible is the translation of 'consejero' as advisor, i.e. 'Delegate(d) Advisor/Counsellor' in the context of social work.

Alcaraz Varó translates this as "Counsellor Delegate",


Explanation:
which is a safe approximation in sworn (juridical) translations. It should be explained, however, that no equivalent position exists in the English-speaking world, the Consejero Delegado being the liaison between the Board of Directors and Management. In large groups and holdings, this is equivalent to a CEO. If the functional context is executive, however, he could be called the Managing Director. Where this title appears on a legal document, take into consideration whether the document appoints him Sole Administrator (Administrador Unico) or Attorney/ Legal Representative (Apoderado/ Representante Legal). This is one of the most sensitive terms in translating from Spanish, especially when you have the CD himself breathing over your shoulder and down your neck. You have to "context" him somehow.
