Query employee manager chain for director title

I am hoping to find an automated way to determine from a form using a workflow who is the director the individual reports.


The idea is to copy the director on the manager approval since the approval goes to the subsidiary President in the next approval. For my requirements the director needs to be notified during the direct manager approval once submitted.


Their are a couple of caveats that I am not sure how to handle.
How to identify the directors level? The title form Active Directory shows either Director, Department i.e. "Director, Tax" or "Sr. Director, Sales" or "Dir, Supply Chain"

How do I loop or recurse the lookup for manager title does not equal director? For example Loop if current VarDirector.Title != '*Dir*'
