a. He is growing since he became manager.

b. He is growing since he has become manager.


Are both sentences grammatically correct?

Does 'since' have a temporal meaning in both or could it mean 'because'?

Is there any difference in their meanings?

Many thanks

It is temporal

I would prefer...

He has grown since he became [a] manager
Best wishes,
