Display Account Field in Contacts

Hi everyone,


We have SugarCRM CE Version 6.5.20 (Build 1001) and connected MailChimp to Sugar using Cazoomi.  To allow us to correctly filter contact records I need to be able to access a custom field from the Account associated with a Contact called "Account_Type". Account_Type is a dropdown and I want to be able to filter eventually on "Customer" and "Prospect" Account_Types directly in Contacts.


My question is how do I get the value saved in the Account_Type field of Accounts to be driven into the new Account_Type field in Contacts automatically, so that when I then query Contacts I can see the Account_Type without a report based join to Accounts.


Just as background, I have  reasonable knowledge of Sugar and can bubble my way through php if I really have to!


Thanks for your help,
