How can one progress from being a Project Manager to becoming an executive

As far as I know, becoming a Director of Project Management is the only way to enter the executive ranks, but I'm wondering if there is any other path forward. Any thoughts on this?

All of it boils down to personal interest, the relationships you have built in the company, and your ability to perform a role.

While the Project Management Officer leadership is a natural progression for some Project Management professionals, if you've developed sufficient domain knowledge about a product, capability, or service, you could aspire to a Product Owner/Manager role.

I have also seen Project Management professionals step into COO type roles, given the significant overlap in the competencies needed to succeed in both these roles.
