EVP and GM, Data Center Group, Intel, 54
Last April, Bryant was promoted from SVP to executive vice president of Intel’s data center group. Once Intel’s CIO, she now leads the chipmaker’s most profitable business, selling the high-end processors that last year brought in an impressive $18 billion in sales. But overall demand for server chips recently slowed, and Intel’s stock price has taken a hit. Bryant’s biggest challenge is to continue to deliver double-digit revenue growth—no easy task.
