assistant to the regional manager vs assistant regional manager <-----Topic from original thread title added to post by moderator (Florentia52)----->

From the TV Show The Office. What is the difference? I still quite don't get maybe because English is my second language.

    An assistant regional manager is a regional manager but of a lower grade. It's like a vice-president.
    An assistant to the regional manager is an assistant assigned to aide the regional manager.
    Assistant Regional Manager
    Dwight Schrute is tricked into thinking that he is Assistant Regional Manager when Michael says that he is Assistant to the Regional Manager throughtout the show.
