Just to follow up, this looks great and is exactly what we need.

I'll let Rufus fill you in on what we discussed there, but basically, it looks like Rufus is ready and able to continue coordinating our growing number of projects and reporting on them to the Board, so we are not proposing to seek another project manager at this point.

My only comment is that Rufus, if it looks like it is getting too much, then please raise your hand and let us know as early as possible.  And thanks for taking on the role!
