    I want to send a speculative letter to a particular employer, but I don't know who the letter should be addressed to.

    I've checked the employer's website and looked through their list of employees, but no one has the title "Hiring Manager."

    Who do you think I should address to: Founder and CEO, Managing Director, or Director? Thanks.

    I've also recently accepted a connection invitation from the CEO on linkedin. If I should address to the CEO would it appropriate to send the letter on linkedin?

    Do they have a careers page on their website? Contact details should be on there about who to send a CV and cover letters to.

    It's not really for an advertised position. It's more about letting know that they have a "gap" in their
    media marketing strategy and the benefits of it. The purpose is to convince them that they need it and hopefully recruit me into their company to fill that "gap." They don't seem to have much of an online presence, like twitter, Facebook.

    They have a company address on their contacts page, but no person's name.

    If the CEO has connected with you on LinkedIn, then send it to them via LinkedIn (you can send a cover letter and CV as an attachment in a message on LinkedIn).

    I wouldn't normally recommend doing this if you weren't connected to the organisation via LinkedIn, but as you are a connection, it makes sense to do it in this way.

    If the CEO has their email address listed on their LInkedIn profile, you could also send it directly to them in an email instead and make it clear in your opening cover letter paragraph that you are connected on LinkedIn.
