Pretty much someone awesome but also extremely undervalued. Picture a bulldozer in a sandbox. Then picture a bulldozer with awesome spiked hair, huge calf muscles and a killer marathon time in a sandbox. There's your Director, Projects.
The other day I was walking my dog, and a "Director, Projects" jumped out of the bushes in a ninja suit and kicked me in the head. Then he ran away at a great clip for 26.2 miles.
