That's an interesting and surely a challenging question. Probably the main duties of the CEO as part of his/her job description shall be :

1. Setting strategy and vision
2. Building culture
3. Team Building
4. Capital Allocation

Above this, he needs to have these skills :

1. Leadership skills
2. Strategic and business planning skills
3. Goal setting, decision making & performance tracking skills
4. Relationship building
5. Opportunity identification
6. Execution of strategy

You may draft the profile on the above points..
