English term or phrase: leading manager
In this context "leading manager" is not a person, but a company: "xxx is a leading manager in the cable and telecommunications industry with a wide range of experience and expertise in the field." I assume it's something like "Marktführer". Has anybody got any better suggestions?

German translation:u.A. "führungstechnische Vorbild"
Explanation:
A "leading manager" enterprise may not necessarily be a "Marktführer" (but quite likely). In case your enterprise is not a "market leader", you might use something less dangerous like "Managementvorreiter/führer" or "organisatorisches(r) Leitbild/Führer" or "führungstechnische Vorbild" or "some other such rubbish".

Thanks for your suggestions, even though they were not quite appropriate for my context (legal contract), but you've also confirmed the term "Marktfuehrer" which I think is what they meant ...

"leading manager"


Explanation:
My copy of Dietl/Lorenz "Wörterbuch für Recht, Wirtschaft und Politik" - Englisch-Deutsch published by C.H. Beck'sche Verlag in 2000 under ISBN 3406441123 must be defective, I cannot find the English phrase "leading manager" under "leading" or under "manager"? Could someone please tell me which page?

Explanation of how I found it in Dietl/Lorenz...


Explanation:
Dear Dan,

Although leading manager is not in the D/L Dictionary in so many words, the meaning of it is.

Mirabelle mentioned her query was about a company being a leader in an industry. So I looked under 'market leader', came up with 'Marktfuehrer/Spitzenreiter' which I translate back to 'leading manager' - in this case anyway.

As I took the D/L Dic as reference I mentioned it.

Hope this clears it up.

Sabine :o)
