7. David Donatelli
Executive Vice President, General Manager, Enterprise Servers Storage and Networking for Enterprise Business
Donatelli brings feistiness to HP's channel: In March at HP's Americas Partner Conference, he urged partners to pressure Oracle on Itanium, and at the Discover conference in June he took a jab at Cisco. "We have a very bold ambition and that is to change the networking industry," Donatelli said at Discover. "That's because nothing has happened there in about 10 years."
