(there are too many pages called "director" anyway. This name is probably fine)
(I agree that the page should not be moved. But following his in-game nomenclature, it's redundant to state that the "Radio Director is the head of the Radio Tower".)

The Director (Japanese: きょくちょう Director) is the head of the Radio Tower in Goldenrod City. He appears in Pokémon Gold, Silver, Crystal, HeartGold, and SoulSilver.

In the games

A key part of all Johto-based games is Team Rocket's invasion of the Radio Tower. After defeating many Grunts, the player meets up with who is assumed to be the Director. It turns out that this Director is merely an impostor: Team Rocket Executive Petrel disguised as the Director. Once he has been defeated, Petrel will reveal that the Director is in the Goldenrod Tunnel. After rescuing him, the real Director will give the Card Key, that will give access to the fifth floor, where Team Rocket's Executives are.

Once Team Rocket has been conclusively defeated and disbanded, the Director will express his gratitude by awarding an item. In Pokémon Gold and HeartGold he will give the Rainbow Wing, in Pokémon Silver and SoulSilver he will give the Silver Wing, and in Pokémon Crystal he will give the Clear Bell. The Director supposedly found the item given when the tower previously there was knocked down, and they are all used in summoning a legendary Pokémon, specifically the version mascots Ho-Oh, Lugia, and Suicune respectively.
