German term or phrase: komplementärin
In the employment contract of a Geschäftsführer: "Zur Einräumung der Vertretungsmacht wird der Geschäftsführer zur gesamtvertretungsberechtigten Geschäftsführer der Komplementärin der Gesellschaft ernannt, ohne daß hierdurch jedoch ein weiteres Anstellungsverhältnis zwischen der Komplmentärin und dem Geschäftsführer begründet wird; mithin nimmt der Geschäftsführer diejenigen Aufgaben wahr, welche der Komplementärin als solcher bei der Gesellschaft obliegen." It is a German company, now part of an American group, though perhaps not when the contract was written.
