I'm up for a promotion and a change in title. I'm currently an Associate. My company is looking for feedback on what title I should have for my new position. Internally, my title will be "Manager", but that doesn't correlate to a normal title in the RE world. I work in a family office so titles here are a little different and more in line with corporate tiles (Analyst - > Associate -> Manager -> Director -> VP -> SVP etc.). As such, VP is totally off the table. I could maybe ask for a Director title, but that will probably get some push back.
On the real estate side of things, we are a "eat what you kill" type of operation. I source, execute, and manage all the investments I am responsible for (direct, JV's and Funds). I want to have a title that is appropriate for the external parties I'm interacting with. The best thing I've come up with so far is Portfolio Manager, but I'm not sure if that is accurate.
