    A&R means "Artist and Repertoire"
    I think they're some kind of talent scouts, des "chasseurs de talents" maybe?

    From a LA Times article :
    In the music industry, talent scouts work in a department called Artist & Repertoire (A&R). They scout and sign singers and musicians as well as manage the recording process.

    --> Artists and Repertoire (kind of "directeur artistique")
