German term or phrase: Präsidialdirektion
Does anyone know of an official English rendering of the "Präsidialdirektion" in the City of Bern government? See http://www.bern.ch/stadtverwaltung/prd. If nothing official exists, I would appreciate suggestions for an appropriate translation. The best I can come up with is "Executive Office."

Thanks!

The office of mayor (Stadtpräsident), as a primus inter pares (first among equals) in the executive council, is mostly representative. As of 2005, the mayor of Berne is Alexander Tschäppät of the Social Democrats.
