Personal 'A' before Cliente?

In the first question of the quiz above, why is there no personal 'a' before 'este cliente'. Would it be more grammatically correct to write 'conseguir a este cliente' considering that the customer is a person?  Thank you!

Hola Cheyenne,

I added the preposition because if we are specific about the direct object referring to people we generally use the personal "a". 

Saludos,

Inma
