Grading comment
I've got the straight dictionary translation (which by the way is for American English, whereas my text is from the UK), but I am uncomfortable with it, as Betriebsleiter is akin to Werksleiter and so does not express the seniority of somebody in charge of a large firms operations. I eventually settled for Betriebsdirektor.
