German term or phrase: PM
The full sentence in which this abbreviation appears is: "Anruf bei Fabio, dem PM für Agypten, der alle Details kennt...". This is a travel agency, and the phone call to Fabio is about an outbreak of food poisoning on one of the company's ships in Egypt. I'm pretty sure the "M" part of this abbreviation stands for "manager", just can't think what the "P" is for.

English translation:Project Manager
Explanation:
Like everyone else I'm just guessing. I don't think it's a pantry manager though because the pantry would be on the ship, I imagine, and from what you write it appears this Fabio is stationed somewhere on land.

Please accept my apologies for taking such a long time to grade this! After much thought, this is the answer I went for, but most of the other answers were equally plausible. It would appear that it's an English abbreviation, anyway. Germans often seem fond of using English abbreviations! :-)

promotion manager


Explanation:
This is also only a guess, but as it is a travel situation, Fabio might be responsible for promoting Egypt as a holiday location.

Food service manager??


Explanation:
Provianten-Manager might be the original German. This, too, is a guess, but Provianten = food / in military = rations HTH Joe Schmid
