muck-a-muck

 People in charge, decision-makers.
 ► “The expression is still often heard as ‘high muck-a-muck’ because of its probable derivation from Chinook [Native American] jargon, hiu (plenty) muckamuck (food); hence, one who has plenty to eat, or a man of power, a BIG WHEEL.” (Safire’s New Political Dictionary, 1993, p. 469)

American business jargon. 2014.
