Influential males in management (7)


I believe the answer is:


'influential' is the definition.

'males in management' is the wordplay.
'management' is an anagram indicator.
'malesin' is an anagram of 'SEMINAL'.

(Other definitions for seminal that I've seen before include "Very important, original" , "Menials giving rise to new beginnings" , "Major" , "Strongly influential" , "Majorly influential" .)

I've seen this clue in The Telegraph.
