5. David Kenyon, Vice President, Worldwide Channel Marketing, AMD
David Kenyon has in only a few months breathed new life into the AMD channel program. He's the type of executive who's able to takes lots of channel data and information and use them to quickly make decisions. Those decisions are paying off in more support for AMD partners. Kenyon has already merged four partner tracks into a single program. The aim: to reach underserved portions of AMD's system builders. Look out, Intel. With Kenyon's leadership, we foresee an AMD channel renaissance in 2010.
