English term or phrase: Account Services Representative
Hello,

I have a document here that basically consist of a list of shipping terms. One of the terms is 'Account Services Representative'. It goes along with 'AM', which stands for Account Manager.

The real problem is this: The term needs to fit into a small screen as this is for a software. So the English version simply uses ASR/AM. And I am supposed to do the same in German.

Who of you can help me with a good idea on how to translate Account Services Representative AND bring it into a three-letter abbreviation (or something really short)?

Any help greatly appreciated!

Explanation:
Account (Services) Representative and Account Manager mean "Kundenbetreuer" in German whereas it is common practice to speak of Account Managers in Germany as well (abbreviation AM). To be on the safe side, you could insert a footnote for explanation.
