Director


Explanation:
In Sweden the title "affärsområdeschef" is commonly followed by a specifikation,
for instance "Affärsområdeschef, Norden"
which translates to Director, Nordic Region.
Another example is "Affärsområdeschef, Systemlösningar" which translates to: Director, Department of System Solutions. Thus, I think that it is necessary to specify what the Director title is targeting.

district affairs officer (gov. UK), product group manager (priv. sector)


Explanation:
If you have no further info I would suggest you go for the private sector version.

The suggestion from "twiddle" is a stab in the dark! Be aware! Sweden is filled with affärsområdeschefer without directorships!

(Business/Product/Sales) Area Manager


Explanation:
I agree with Sven but I would like to suggest the above. 'Director' is a member of the board, which this 'chef' rarely is. Manager is the word.
Twiddle is right when he says that the wor 'Affärsområdeschef' is commonly accompanied by a precisioning part like *norden' of similar (mustn't be geographical).
affärs=business/product/sales
område=area
chef=manager
Therefore: (Business/Product/Sales) Area Manager
