The grand poobah, the big cheese, the head honcho, the HMFIC.
These are just a few of the synonyms for some very self-important man in the vicinity.
There is another phrase that’s less gender-specific that sounds better and really paints a picture.
A muckety muck.
I can tell by this sign that Mr. Baumgarten is as muckety as a muck can be. Probably the most muckety of all local mucks.
Just look at that sign. You can tell by the rust on the post that Baumgarten is an old-school boss. There’s no Tesla charger there either.
He’s all gas.
