22. Dennis Morgan, Vice President, North America Public Sector Channels, Oracle
The 26-year public sector veteran walked away this year with Everything Channel's Public Sector Channel Executive of the Year Award. That's because he is one of the most trusted, visible and well-known executives serving public sector solution providers and customers. The secret to his success? An ability to remain sharply focused on creating three-way partnerships between the customer, the solution provider and the vendor. It's not always easy, particularly given the complexities of the federal market. No one does it better than Morgan. He's helped Oracle public sector partners win more than their share of big federal IT projects.
