2010 Top Women in Wireline

Tools

Women in WirelineWelcome to FierceTelecom's first annual Top Women in Wireline. This is the debut of what we plan on being a yearly series recognizing important figures in the wireline segment of the telecom industry.

If imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, then this new feature is certainly example of that notion. It is taking a page from the series that my colleague Sue Marek, Editor in Chief of FierceWireless and her team have made popular with their annual Women in Wireless issue. You can read their latest profile here.

As we all know, the wireline industry, much like its wireless counterpart, has traditionally been a male-dominated industry. With that as a backdrop, I decided it was about time that FierceTelecom should recognize the hard work and innovative spirit of today's women telecom executives.

The leaders on the Women in Wireline list have been at the forefont of developing new services, technology innovation, conducting large acquisitions and conducting some rather complex integration exercises.  FierceTelecom based its selections on
our interaction with members of the wireline industry segment, observations and reader input.

Of course, if you think there's someone that you believes deserves recognition, I invite you to share those thoughts with us in our comments section below.--Sean
