    promoted to manager

    Johny was promoted to manager by virtue of his hard work.

    Hi,
    Isn't manager in the above an countable noun? Why isn't it be a manager or managers? Thanks,

    Re: promoted to manager

    It's a shorter way to say the position of manager.
    I am not a teacher.
