Laurie Potratz, Senior Director, North American Channel Sales, Brocade
There are so many executives I admire; it’s hard to name just one. Those I admire most do a great job at multitasking, maintain very public and private lives, and stay focused. They achieve without constantly reminding people of their dedication or service. Many of them give back extensively to the community. They also don’t forget where they came from and how they got to where they are, which is important when driving an organization.
