Explanation: ...but I also do not think that Craft Development is a company name. If it were, the phrase would have read "Craft Development's Visiting Director," not "Visiting Director *of* Craft Development." The visitor is an colleague from another site who is there to observe, participate etc., but he or she is in the craft development department, whatever that means exactly for the company in particular.

Explanation: It sounds a little like a "visiting professor" at a university (see the first link describing Al Gore's new job). Actually, universities also have "visiting directorships" (see the second link - Judy Algozin, Visiting Director of Development). You'll find lots of examples if you do a Google search for "Visiting Director of". The "Craft Development" part sounds like a specific function that looks after development of certain skills that are referred to as "crafts." For example, diamond cutting can be called a craft.
Explanation: Director of Craft Development = Head of the crafts department within a school, art center, guild.
Visiting...= an influential person accorded special treatment while visiting an organization, industry, city, etc.
