Approval Workflow

I am wanting to create an approval workflow that requires different levels of approval. The number of levels depends on where the request is coming from. As an example request comes in that requires Director, VP, and CEO approval to proceed, but I do not want the next level to see a request that was denied by the lower level. But, to make things more confusing some departments do not have a director, so unless it is approved by the Director it would not make it to the VP even though there is no director. And some departments have directors but would not need VP approval, but still need CEO.

How can I set it up so that I do not have to have several different workflows?
