Women Of The Channel: Executives I Admire

Sue Smith, Director, Partner Programs, Symantec

I truly feel that what Steve Bennett has achieved in his short time at Symantec – and throughout his extensive career – has been great and deserves recognition. Similarly, I also feel that Marissa Mayer's new role at Yahoo is admirable. Both are considered lightning rods, changing the focus, the culture -- even the energy -- of very large, established companies. I love a good turnaround story, where executives take action and move forward regardless of the tough trajectory ahead. That, to me, commands respect and admiration.
