24. Stewart Krentzman, Americas President and CEO, Oki Data
There simply are few CEOs that have the channel passion, leadership and business skills of Stewart Krentzman. Krentzman, who is slated to finish out his 12-year run with the company early next year, championed and never wavered -- not once -- from a 100 percent channel business model at Oki Data. His crowning achievement may be the launch earlier this year of an innovative Total Managed Print services program for partners. Here's hoping we see Krentzman back in the channel trenches.
