11. Gregg Ambulos, Vice President, Americas Channel Sales, EMC
It is not going too far to say that it is Ambulos' hard-driving leadership that has put EMC into the channel catbird seat. Ambulos has take EMC from a no-holds-barred direct sales power that stepped on partners to a channel powerhouse that is driving big services sales and profits through its partners. EMC, in fact, has won Everything Channel Annual Report Card awards for top scores in network storage and storage software for the last three consecutive years. That's what we call channel sales leadership.
