5. Leonard Iventosch
Vice President, Americas Channel Sales
Funny how things change in the channel. Iventosch was for many years vice president of global channels at NetApp, one of EMC’s biggest storage rivals. Now Iventosch, who joined EMC following two and a half years at EMC-acquired Isilon, is running the Americas channel show at the storage giant -- another feather in EMC’s cap given the enormous respect Iventosch commands from channel partners.
