    our man to

    a. He is the man to repair bikes.
    b. He is our man to repair bikes.


    Could these mean he is the man/our employee/the member of our group who has been assigned the task of repairing bikes?

    Many thanks.

    Re: our man to

    I would not say a.
    b might work but the context would have to be very clear.

    He's the guy in our group who repairs [the] bikes.
