Herb would (probably) have little trouble getting the appropriate approval...and that could come from the POI who could sign "for" the Administrator. Not too difficult (IMHO) to understand the rationale for the CEO needing occasional access, and benefiting from exposure to the flight deck. On the other hand, I am aware of FAA action against a CEO (US Carrier) who rode the flight deck with his son on an international flight returning to the US...so the advance approval is an important step.
