Can editors see members in Protected content backend?

I have a client that needs access to the members area of the protected content back-end. Generally we setup clients as editor so as not to allow them to accidentally bring down their site through changes that an admin can make. I can only think of two possible ways that this would be possible,

1. We give the client admin access and restrict the available areas accessible by that user in the Wordpress back-end area.
Or
2. Find a way to give editors access to the members area of protected content in the Wordpress back-end area.

I'm up to using either solution or another but thought it best to check if the community had any input on the best solution.
