How would you call this position?

The company I work for wants me to create a new position in the post team and be in charge of it. You tell me what could be its name since I am not sure yet. Let me explain you what it is about first.

We are a big TV production company, and constantly there are 2, 3 or even 4 shows being produced simultaneously.

Each production has its own audio post team, which includes 4 people most of the times: A mixer (who also selects and edits the music, that's why here we call him the "musicalizer"), a dialog editor, a foley editor and an assistant who does backgrounds, conforms, and various tasks (everyone has to do everything at certain point when deadlines are tough).

The head of the audio team in each project is the mixer, he makes decisions, gives rules to the team, and organizes the workflow. However, he has a big amount of responsabilities and there is where the idea of creating a new position came from.

My responsability would be to improve the quality of everything audio related in post, by being in constant communication with the production sound team and giving them feedback, giving advice about locations in preproduction, providing dialog editors with new tools and techniques to do their work better, being a support for the mixers by designing custom reverbs, telephone filters, and different patches for each project, and being a bridge between the director of postproduction, and the audio team.

I don´t know if a position like this is usual in other companies, so let me know what do you think could be improved, and what would be the name of this new position.

Thanks.

The bridge between director and audio team is the supervising sound editor.
