Unsure which formula to use (Collect? Join?)

Howdy all,

I'm working on a project template that has a RACI already filled in with cross functional positions.

i.e. in the C column for task A I might have (product manager, key accounts manager).

I then want a formula that references a contact list for the project team so when it gets filled out, the RACI will auto-fill based on the name that is next to the position.

For instance, on my project team sheet next to Product Manager, I would put "Susie Q." On my project plan, wherever "Product Manager" lives in the RACI, it would auto-populate "Susie Q."

I've figured this out with an index, but need to it pull more than one contact in some instances. Is this even possible? Would it be better w/ a replace function?
