Is the director the owner of a company?

The owners of a limited liability company are the shareholders. The shareholders are the ones who have been vested with the powers to appoint a limited director of a company. Company directors can, however, assume the dual roles of being a shareholder and a director of a company simultaneously if they are shareholders in the company.
