Your Personal Representative is the person who will gather your assets, administer them as required, and distribute your assets.

There can be more than one Personal Representative.  If you use more t han one person, it is advisable to include a provision in your Will about how decisions are made. For instance: "All decisions to be made by my Personal Representative shall require the approval of both of them."
