/ post within a charity
German term or phrase: Geschäftsleiter(in) XX Schweiz
In the case of a charity, would such a person be described as General Manager, XX (where XX is the name of the organisation) Switzerland or Managing Director, or something else entirely?

Thanks in advance!

Explanation:
both general manager and MD sound a bit too commercial/corporate. I would go for Director, Executive Director, Director of Services or something similar.
