Whats the title for the role?

The language is super vague...it almost sounds like you'll be a quasi business analyst supporting the corp dev team. Documenting processes, monitoring post-close integration, ensuring proper governance of deliverables in the M&A life-cycle. It all reads kind of passive and not execution oriented. Also curious what they called this position if you don't mind sharing, and also maybe what industry the role is in, as that might be material info.
