A. The team members could, from then on, directly communicate with the managers and partners.
B. The team members could, from then on, directly communicate with managers and partners.

1. Does sentence A with the article 'the' mean I'm specifically referring to the managers and partners in the company the team members are working for?
2. Does sentence B with the article omitted mean I'm probably referring to the managers and partners of any company?
3. If my interpretations are incorrect, which sentence is correct?
4. If both sentences are possible, how are they different from each other?
5. Can I also say 'the managers and the partners'? How are they different in meaning?
