The big cheese

 The big cheese is the most important or powerful person in a group or organisation.

Examples:

The big cheese is coming to visit our office today - she's the owner of the whole company!

I don't want to work as a secretary all my life. One day, I'm going to be the big cheese!

Take note

If two people are like chalk and cheese, they are very different to each other.

Example:

Sarah and Alice are identical twins, but they are like chalk and cheese. Sarah is very shy and quiet and Alice is very loud and outgoing.
