1. Jeremy Burton
Vice President, Marketing
The best and brightest technology marketer in the business, Burton is an original who is always definitive, never derivative. He’s able to take complex and arcane IT concepts and translate them into compelling reasons to make a big technology investment. He makes the technology business fun with his ability to mix it up with any and all comers on technology, channel and business matters. Burton, a former channel executive at Oracle and Veritas, joined EMC in March 2010 as its first-ever chief marketing officer, and he's already established himself as an executive who understands what makes the channel tick.
