I don't think that the term adds all that much. When I read "executive management" I think "they want this to sound important", "some judgment may be needed", and also "but it is very vague regarding what this actually means". I then read the rest of the text to try to figure out what the term actually means in this instance. 

Perhaps since I don't think that the term means much, I also don't get confused by it (since I read pretty much nothing into the term other than "some judgment needed", which to me also makes me think of "sensible person is a necessity" and "some IETF experience might be useful" ).
