German term or phrase: Marktleiter
occupational title -
...sowie die *Marktleiter* der besuchten Filialen.
Simone Brinkmann-Robinson
Manager
Explanation:
...sowie die 'Marktleiter' der besuchten Filialen = as well as the managers of the visited branches

A branch is managed by a 'branch manager' or in this case by a 'manager'. Not by a market leader, nor by a market manager. Marktleiter in this context simply means 'manager'. 'branch manager' would be too much, because the word 'Filialen' already implies that it concerns branches, so what other kind of manager than a branch manager could it be anyway?

marketing managers


Explanation:
This is a strange one.
It is not "market leader" because of the branches (Filialen).
So I think they are referring to the marketing managers of those branches. (The strange titles some people come up with).

supermarket manager


Explanation:
I suppose your text is about a supermarket chain. In this case the "Filialen" are the supermarkets of this chain and "Marktleiter" is the manager of a supermarket.
In the sentence shown "managers" would be sufficient as suggested above.
