6 months ago our VP made some changes to his team. From 3 reports he moved to 7. The manager i was reporting to became my peer and I also started reporting to the VP in a slightly different role.

Someone joined our team (no experience with our team) and they were moved from an AD to a Director level. I'm at manager level and the next step up is AD. Everyone else reporting to the VP is either AD or Director.

I spoke to the VP that I recognize I didn't get an official promotion and I'm the only AD that I'd be pushing for one through my hard work and results.

I'm happy to prove my worth, but I would like input from you on what I provide to him to justify this and how hard I push for this.

I'm not a great self promoter (in fact I hate it) but I've also learnt the hard way, if you don't ask, you don't get.

Your input would be appreciated.

 It would be helpful to know what the VP sees as the distinction between a Manager and an AD.

Then go for that - if possible.

Did he recognize the difference ?

What was his response ?
