15. Steve Pataky
Executive Vice President of Worldwide Sales
As SonicWall spun out from Dell last fall, head of worldwide sales Steve Pataky has led the network security vendor's transformation into a 100 percent channel company. The results from that shift have been significant, with SonicWall surpassing its aggressive growth goals and registering more than 15,000 partners into its new SecureFirst partner program since its August launch.
