Italian term or phrase: clienti diretti
Job title: Responsabile Commerciale clienti diretti

Is 'cliente diretto' a 'private client', as opposed to corporate client?

Thanks for your help.

direct customers
Explanation:
ciao irene, da un'occhiata in rete mi sembra di capire che i "clienti diretti" siano semplicemente i clienti che interagiscono direttamente con l'impresa. per esempio, un produttore di marmellate può vendere le sue conserve direttamente a chi le consuma (clienti diretti, che possono essere individui o imprese) oppure a un supermercato, che poi le rivende ai consumatori finali (che in quest'ultimo caso diventano clienti indiretti).
io direi semplicemente "direct customers".
