Italian term or phrase: vicedirettore ad personam
This is from the biography of a journalist.
He was first "vicedirettore" of one newspaper, before becoming "vicedirettore ad personam" of another.

Dal 19xx al 20xx ha lavorato all'Espresso dov’è stato vicedirettore. Attualmente è vicedirettore ad personam del Corriere della Sera.

Can anyone enlighten me, please?

agree  Thomas Roberts: yes, but I think it's Massimo Muchetti. Another wonderful Italianism, an editor without editorial responsibility
