How do I get my voice to project louder, naturally?

I've always had an issue with my voice not being very bold or full of oomph. I think the best way to describe it is, 'strained.'
For example, let's say I'm at a loud club and trying to talk to someone, even if I'm within earshot's distance away and talking to their EAR, they still have trouble hearing what I'm saying. It's almost as if I have to forcefully SHOUT to get them to hear what I'm saying. Of course, that comes with the tonal inflections and sounds that make you sound angry.. cause you're shouting.
Anyway, how do I naturally get a voice that projects deeper and farther?
I have a boss who has a really loud voice that's full of bass and warmth. You can hear him on a conference call when his door is shut. I'm not quite sure if he just naturally talks louder than most people, but he has a very charismatic voice and it really demands a lot of executive presence. This is what I'm aiming for.
To give you some context, he is around 6'5" and probably north of 225 pounds. I, on the other hand, am a slim 6'1" and 150 pounds. I'm sure this has something to do with it as well.
Do I need to take voice lessons (do those even exist)? Singing lessons? I also feel like I don't have a very attractive voice, so if there's something I can do about that, that'd be great as well.
