Projektmanager


Explanation:
In my previous company DDs (development directors) were simply project managers. They had nothing to do with product development but simply kept the team on schedule.

Ich habe noch folgende Stellenbeschreibung gefunden:
The Development Director is responsible for the formation and management of a new fundraising department. The Development Director develops and executes the tactical and strategic fundraising plan with the new Executive Director and Deputy Executive Director. The director will: research, develop and maintain donor contacts; facilitate donor prospect meetings and stewardship plans; maintain funding schedules; and, write/edit all proposals, case statements, and concept papers. Development Director will maintain his/her own donor and prospect pool and work closely to shape the Executive Director's fundraising activity.

Vielleicht wäre: "Leiter der Abteilung Fundraising und Organisationsentwicklung" eine Möglichkeit

Notes to answerer
Asker: Hier dreht es sich ja um eine Charity, deshalb habe ich mich nicht für Entwicklungsdirektor entscheiden wollen. Über Development Director habe ich folgendes gelesen: "any people wonder why the task of fundraising is described with many different job titles, such as "fundraising coordinator," "development director," or "resource developer." ... Wenn es sich also um eine Rolle handeln sollte, die mit der Mittelbeschaffung zu tun hat, wie wäre es denn dann mit "Koordinator für Mittelbeschaffung"
