The Executive Office is a faction created by and under the supervision of the Board of Directors.

The Board of Directors appoints a Chief Executive Officer, who is responsible for hiring an executive management team to administer the day to day affairs of the GSS.

Often this appointee elects to appoint itself as President simultaneously. Equally, the Board of Directors is frequently delegated the task of appointing other members of the Executive Office, however the process has more frequently been submitted to members in a general election of the executive management team.
