Eslambolchi Tops Ten

The CTO with the sexiest name -- AT&T Corp.'s (NYSE: T) Hossein Eslambolchi -- has taken the top spot in Light Reading's new Top Ten Movers and Shakers in Telecom, published today.

The list picks the telecommunications industry's top leaders who are changing the way the business works. The latest list was generated after several Light Reading editors woke up from a deep slumber and realized they'd better do something quick before they got fired. After all, the last time a Movers and Shakers list was published, Corvis Corp. (Nasdaq: CORV) was trading at over $10 per share. Cokes were a nickel! Larry King was on his seventh wife and eighth heart attack!

Not only does the latest list introduce a raft of new names and faces -- but it also names those who have been banished since the previous list. These folks have been put in the infamous Light Reading "Has-Been Bin," in recompense for various bubble-era infractions.

Read about the leaders and the laggards, right here: Top Ten Movers and Shakers in Telecom.
