Hi,
Below query gives below results:

select

*

from

(

Select

a.position_nbr,

a.REPORTS_TO,

a.POSITION_desc,

a.Position_level

ROW_NUMBER() OVER (PARTITION BY a.position_nbr ORDER BY a.EFFDT DESC) AS RN

from PS_POSITION_DATA a
)

where RN='1'


 

position_nbr reports_to   POSITION_desc Position_level

143               12                          CEO                                  CEO

038              143                        DIRECTOR                       DIR

0418             143                       ADVISOR                        ADV

114              143                       DG                                   DG

346              114                     Manager                          MAN

202              114                    Lead                                  LEAD

level1  level2 level3 level4 level5 level6 level7 level8  position_desc position_level

143                                                                                              CEO            CEO

          038                                                                                  DIRECTOR        DIR

          0418                                                                              ADVISOR         ADV

          114                                                                              DG              DG

                   346                                                                  Manager         MAN

Here is the complete code

;WITH CTE

	Select position_nbr , reports_to , POSITION_desc , Position_level, 0 Level
	From PS_POSITION_DATA  E Where E.REPORTS_TO = 'CEO'
    
	UNION ALL

Mybe you can try hierarchical query:
SELECT LPAD(' ',2*(LEVEL-1)) || to_char(position_nbr) lvl ,
        POSITION_desc, Position_level
    FROM PS_POSITION_DATA
    START WITH Position_level = 'CEO'
    CONNECT BY PRIOR position_nbr = reports_to NOCYCLE;

you can use sys_connect_by_path to display the hierarchy

select  position_nbr, REPORTS_TO, POSITION_desc, 
  level position_level, 
  sys_connect_by_path(position_desc, ' / ') reporting_chain
from PS_POSITION_DATA 
connect by prior position_nbr = reports_to 
start with POSITION_desc = 'CEO'
