Grand Vizier Sate Pestage

Grand Vizier was the office in the Galactic Empire responsible for maintaining the day-to-day operations of the Empire and the Imperial Bureaucracy. It was the highest rank besides Galactic Emperor and Darth Vader, who was the Supreme Commander of all Imperial Forces. He oversaw the many ministries, departments, bureaus, and offices, as well as acted as personal assistant to the Emperor.

Essentially, the Grand Vizier performed almost all the day-to-day duties which the Emperor couldn't perform due to the hunt for the remaining Jedi and the Rebellion. He acted as an intermediary for the Emperor; few spoke to His Majesty without first going through the Grand Vizier. He was President of the Imperial Senate, was the senior most ranking member of the Imperial Ruling Council, and was also custodian of the Imperial Seal.

The position of Grand Vizier was formed after the establishment of the Empire, and may have been a replacement for two pre-existing offices, those of Vice Chair and Staff Aide. The only individual to serve in the office was Sate Pestage. As head of the Imperial Government, Pestage was not only a very powerful bureaucrat, he was a loyal and trusted servant to Palpatine.
