Geschäftspartner, Geschäftsfreund, Kunde
Explanation:
Schäfer Dictionary provides "Geschäftsfreund" as a possible translation - don't like it too much, though.

Zahn simply renders it as "Geschäftspartner" and that's exactly what this means. If you have more specific information (context), you may also want to go with "Kunde".
