English term or phrase: power-broker
She no longer wanted to be married to a Washington power-broker
Roser Berdagu
Spanish translation:Peso pesado
Explanation:
Pienso que en esta frase power broker se usa con el significado de "important person, influential person, personage -- (a person whose actions and opinions strongly influence the course of events)" (definición del diccionario onelook), y a menudo se utiliza "peso pesado" con el sentido de alguien muy influyente y de gran importancia en su campo, como peso pesado de las finanzas, peso pesado de la escena internacional, peso pesado de la Unión Europea, etc

manipulador del alto poder/influyente del alto poder


Explanation:
Hi Roser!
As I'm sure you know, a "broker" is usually "corredor" and such. However, in this context I believe that what I've suggested is the correct term...or close enough:-)

Hope it helps:-)

operador de influencias


Explanation:
I would suggest

operador de influencias

given that there is a common expression, "operador político", and this one is highly related.
