Make it YOUR hierarchy
Of the many good tips here, the line "anticipate the size of the company you want to have a year from now" jumps out. There will always be a hierarchy of some sort, but create the hierarchy that will best support the company you're becoming. Not the hierarchy that worked for another company.

Jenga is a fantastic analogy
A friend works for a company that depends heavily on its people and has gotten much larger over the past year. New executive leadership promptly brought in former colleagues and gave them the fancy titles you mention, passing over long-term employees. There's already been some attrition, with a ton of institutional knowledge walking out the door. I get the idea that as a CxO you want to surround yourself with familiar faces, but this seems short-sighted.
