What is the difference between an Estate Executor and an Administrator?

An executor or administrator of an estate has the same responsibilities in that they administer a decedent’s estate. The difference is an executor is named in a decedent’s will to distribute properties as the decedent has directed while an administrator is usually appointed by the court if no will exists, no executor was named in the will, or the executor named in the will has passed away.
