Is there an easier way to call out a particular project manager for a non-MAX workflow job?

I am using file naming convention to create an approval page for proofs in FFC. I am using a 2 digit code in the filename to call out the project manager for that job, and then the approval page has the project manager's name pre-filled.

Currently, I have created a routing node that looks at the file name for the code, and assigns the project manager. 9 project managers equals 9 routing possibilities. Than for each of the 9 routing branches, I assign the correct project manager's name to the Keywords of the PDF. I am then able to pull the $FFwfdoc.Keywords$ into the approval sheet text.

This works fine, but it's not very elegant. Is there any way to assign multiple variables like this without using a routing node?

One option to make things a bit more elegant would be to use the manager's name in the filename. Use the manager's name to make the route node decision and then use substringing to acquire/extract the manager's name from the filename for the Watermark node text.
