Dutch term or phrase: leidend ambtenaar
Hello,

This was one of those terms coined by the Flemish Community for officials in charge of a project on behalf of the Flemish community.
Is there an official translation for this term?

The translator of the text that I am proofing suggested Chief Officer.
I am thinking along the lines of
- leading official
- senior official
- directing official (found this on the site of the Institut Bordet)

Any suggestions welcome.

Thanks in advance
sandy
