20. Nick Tidd, D-Link
What in the world is going on at D-Link? As the year wound down, some of the company's top North America-based executives began to exit, and in mid-December came word that Nick Tidd, longtime channel executive and D-Link's President, North America, would be joining them. D-Link VARs credit Tidd and members of his team for turning D-Link's channel program into a solutions-focused support system; his next port of call is still unknown.
