PermID link from person to organization

I can't seem to find the correct API call to link a person (eg: director) to their employer (organization). I can see this data on the PermID website, but can't determine which API request to make when looking up an organization, in the same way that i would to determine their primary business sector.

Using the example of Commonwealth Bank of Australia, the PermID website (https://permid.org/1-4295856152) shows me that Catherine B. Livingstone is the Chairman. When i make an API request to https://permid.org/1-5000055834?format=json-ld it returns a lot of details on the organization, but has no link to the Officers or Directors that are shown on the website. I am able to access Catherine B. Livingstone's 'held positions' by calling her entity lookup API https://permid.org/1-34413906857?format=json-ld , but when working in a "top down" manner i have no way to programatically know what her PermID is when starting at the organization level. Am i missing something?

From Entity Search User Guide in section 1.3 PermID Entity and Code Datasets, there are links (relationships) from person to organization entities. However, there is no link (relationship) back from organization to person entities.

This is why the response from an organization entity doesn't have PermIDs of person entities.

@jirapongse.phuriphanvicha this definately seems to be the issue, but i'm intrigued then as to how TR are able to show officers and directors on the PermID webpage of an organization. TR must not be using the same API's

According to FAQ, the search API doesn't provide this feature.

However, this information could be from an internal database built from Entity Bulk Download.
