I have a drop-down of users. I need a way to display role of that user just next to its name. I need some good way to do this. Just want to make sure that is easy for User to understand.

With a native dropdown, you're kinda stuck with plain text. So you could put a comma and the role. But beyond that, there's not a whole lot of other options for formatting.
If you look around, you can likely find jQuery plugin replacements for dropdowns that would let you do more formatting in the engineered dropdown, likely including columns.
