Having recently been acquired by a larger group our new boss wants to change some of the titles internally. One of which is to give one of the Managers a title of Director.

He is currently Services Manger and they want to call him Director of Services. The title will be in name only.

I was having a chat with my new boss who told me that there was significance in the way people were titled and that “Services Director” gave someone more rights and responsibilities than “Director of Services”.

I’ve not heard anything like that before. Is he correct and is it really possible to give someone a Director title without them becoming personably liable in some way?

Thank you
