You have built a great foundation over the last three years, you are a star performer and it sounds as though your supervisor is trying to support your growth. One suggestion is to set aside time with your supervisor and talk about a very detailed career path. Although timing will depend on your performance you can see the individuals in those next roles and perhaps be able to get an indicator as to the timing it took them and better set your expectations. You may even want to set up a lunch, and include your supervisor, to talk about their career path and what advice they may have to moving up in the company. At the very least you have expressed an interest in moving up to another executive in the company. Best of luck and hang in there, great companies recognize the value of start performers!
