|Assunto:||My Director ....Director of mine|
And when you say a 'a friend of mine' and continues a sentence; it means that you have more than one friend. In this same pattern, when you say a director of mine you mean that you refer to more than one director.
However I think that you are trying to say 'my director', but the form 'of mine' could be right (who knows if your company has more than one director? Maybe to avoid such doubts, they name these guys as CEOs, CFOs etc. If not, we would say a chief of mine.
Of course it is another can of beans when you have a phrase like "Was your room as small as mine?", where mine ends the sentence.
Hope it helps, at least I´ve done my best.
Let´s wait more opinions/contributions.
See you again. PP.
