English translation:see detail
Explanation:
I'd like to know more context. Is the 'group leader' a person (or function) or a thing? If it's a person or function, then 'produkttrekker' means someone whose responsibility is promote the marketing/sales of a product -- thus a 'product leader' (see ref 1). Otherwise, it's still a 'product leader', but then it means the top product in a particular market or the producer of the top producut(s) in that market (see ref 2))

I am forced to choose a winner, which is a bit silly, since all reply were good and helpful, in order to comment. Anyway it is definitely a person and not a product as appears from the following context:

Produkttrekker [Product leader´] for all CW projects will be (so and so)

I am still searching for a catchy phrase in English.

Explanation:
even though quite comprehensible is not a 'good' Dutch word;
it refers to the main or best-selling product in a companies' range of products.
You may translate it by 'main product' or 'leading product' but keep in mind that the idea behind it, is that the mere presence of this product already lures/should lure customers to this particular company.
A bit like the word 'lijsttrekker' which is the name given to the person who's considered to be the most important in a political party, the one who will get most likely most of the votes; therefore this person is given the first rank/position on the list.

I don't know if you now grasp the idea; if you don't, I'll try again tomorrow.
