25. Michael Jerich, Vice President, Channel Sales, Global Crossing
It didn't take Michael Jerich long to give Global Crossing a big channel boost. A former Level 3 Communications executive, Jerich took the Global Crossing channel job in May and then one month later delivered a new channel program that has won raves from partners. Jerich rebranded and revitalized the channel offering and has gotten partners pumped up. Look for Jerich to make more big changes that put profits into partner's pockets in 2010.
