I received a name card from a client that reads as below:

"Senior Sea Export Customer Service Executive"

Kindly advise if there's any mistake on it because it just doesn't feel right to me.


You just encountered something called an attributive noun.

I don't see a big problem with the string given. Something like...

Senior Executive
Senior Customer Service Executive
Senior Sea Export Customer Service Executive

However, I'd have preferred this in a name card

Sophia K
Senior Customer Service Executive,
Sea Export (Ltd or whatever...)

    Sea Export Department/Division, FredBloogs Co Ltd - perhaps. I'm assuming they have customer service reps (CSRs) for many departments/divisions - hopefully not all with such important-sounding titles ;) – gone fishin' again. Apr 10 '15 at 9:58
