(someone) reports to (someone)

You can explain who a person's boss is using the phrae "__ reports to __".

If your boss is named "Jay", then you can say:

I report to Jay.

She has six people reporting to her now.

This phrase is commonly used in professional jobs and office jobs. It sounds very respectable.

Another expression for this is "works under ___":

Do you still work under Dharmesh?

Marcus is my direct manager, and his boss is the owner.
