3. Dan'l Lewin, Corporate Vice President, Strategic and Emerging Business Development


Lewin ranks so low because the real measure of his influence is outside Microsoft. Located in Silicon Valley, Lewin is responsible for relationships with partners that often are competitors (for example, Intuit and Sun) and with venture capitalists.


Among Microsoft's 70,000-plus employees, there are many influential people. Twenty-five is too small a number to capture the best of the best among a large group of creative people. But Microsoft corporate culture also is very staid and insular, with a top-heavy power structure. Therefore, for this list, I focused more on operational influencers, although there are some thought leaders included. By Joe Wilcox, Microsoft Watch
