French term or phrase: metteur en main
There's not a whole lot of context, this is on a car manufacturer's website:

Cet espace project est réservé aux développments du module de formation Régulateur/Limitateur de vitesses.
La cible: les vendeurs et metteurs en main des affaires primaires du réseau.

"metteur" has a few different translations. This company (they have a TRADOS TM) translates "mise en main" as "handover", but I'm still not sure how to translate metteurs en main.

Thanks in advance!

Explanation:
I found the following on the site below:

"le metteur en main (c'est comme ça qu'ils appellent le gars qui présente la voiture au client le jour de la livraison)..."

Search of dealership AND "delivery representative" and you'll find plenty of examples.
