Reader Poll: Top 10 Movers & Shakers

Our most recent Top 10 Movers & Shakers feature has come and gone and we're already looking ahead to the next list of influencers. But, before we get too lost in thought, we'd like to get your thoughts on how the last list turned out.

Take our poll below and let us know what exec is your favorite from the list, and which one you think didn't deserve all that Movers & Shakers glory:

Of course, we know polls, helpful though they may be, aren't terribly cathartic. So if you have more to say, please do so using the boards below.

One more thing: If you think you know of an executive, famous or infamous, who you feel deserves an extra measure of recognition for all they've done, please do nominate them for Light Reading's Hall of Fame, which will receive its first inductees on the same night that we're handing out the Leading Lights 2010. Click here to nominate anyone you feel deserves a little extra attention for all they've done (or failed to do). The deadline for all Leading Lights 2010 and Hall of Fame entries is Sept. 2.

— Phil Harvey, Editor-in-Chief, Light Reading

In the very early voting, about 30 percent of the poll takers say Nokia Siemens's Ashish Chowdhary is the exec that didn't deserve to be on the list.

No idea how many of those votes came from Ericsson, but we'll see.

Is Andy Rubin getting good marks because people are convinced he'll move and shake things.... or is it just because he's from Google?

Separately: Looks like Telefonica's Cesar Alierta wins in the "overall indifference" category (fewest total votes pro+con).

Two Men whose access equipment customers (rural service providers) have cleaned up with the lion's share of stimulus funds awarded to date:  Bob Howard Anderson and Carl Russo.


For the next 3 years, the equipment sold by OCNW and CALX may make up over 50% of last mile access equipment (GPON/ADSL, Cabinets, ONTs/Blades) sold in the US and will enable broadband services in many small towns and rural settings bringing modern communication necessities to schools, businesses, hospitals and many others who have been without.


These two leaders, especially Bob Anderson and OCNW, have deliberately concentrated on predominantly the Rural Service providers serving the average small American Community.


For this and for the events yet to unfold as the stimulus funds are used, I think these guys deserve some serious Kudos.
