19. Brian Roberts

CEO, Comcast

Comcast's Roberts continues to push the cable communications and Internet provider boldly into areas where competitors fear to tread. The latest example: a new feature called See It that connects Twitter with TV. In the business market, Comcast Business broke new ground with a landmark deal to bring telecom carrier services to the IT channel through Synnex.

The new partnership makes Synnex the first IT distributor to serve as a major agent under Comcast Business Solutions Provider Program. Partner say the deal, put together by Vice President Indirect Channels Craig Schlagbuam, is a game-changer.
