French term or phrase: interlocuteur opérationnel
This is part of a cover letter.
I'm thinking I should translate it as "manager."


Cette expérience, qu’on peut qualifier véritablement d’immersion, ainsi que mes activités à Paris de réponses à appel d’offres et revues commerciales, me permettent d’appréhender avec justesse et maturité non seulement l’ ****interlocuteur opérationnel****, mais aussi le client et l’acheteur.

the operation's mediator
Explanation:
First in the text you have provided there's few grammatical errors that makes me think it's not written by someone whose native language is French. However, I am confident it's not meant to be a "manger", the word "interlocuteur" can mean a spokesman or someone who represents someone else, " est une personne avec laquelle on engage des négociations" ( thefreedictionary.com). from the context, I think I can say it's someone who mediates or in charge of the operations. Hope this helps. Good luck

agree  JaneD: I would use "operational contact"

  -> Thanks, Janded! It depends on the context. This is typical marcom speak. In a blog, "partner" could be more appropriate.
