Every industry has a designation that represents the leading executives in that field for any given year. The medical field has the “Best Doctors,” the legal profession has “Super Lawyers” and the financial planning industry has “FIVE STAR Financial Planners.” The Tech Power Player designation represents leadership excellence in technology. Each class of executives will be permanently listed on this site.
