English term or phrase: dedicated account manager
I would like to know what exactly the "dedicated" in "dedicated account manager" is supposed to mean.

The two most likely possibilities in the target language are "exclusive" (as in that account manager only has one client) and "hard-working/loyal/enthusiastic" (as in "he is such a dedicated worker"). However, I am wary of promising an exclusive account manager if that's not what it actually means!!

Please advise?
