2010 Top Women in Wireless

Tools

2010 Top Women in WirelessWelcome to the 2010 FierceWireless Top Women in Wireless list. This is the third annual edition of this popular feature in which Fierce editors track the female stars in the wireless industry (click here for 2009 and here for 2008).

In the traditionally male-dominated world of telecom, it's not always easy to find women in top-ranking positions. But thanks to input from our readers, Fierce editors have compiled a list that we believe encompasses some of the best and brightest female executives in the business.

These women have been selected for their accomplishments, their technical savvy, their leadership and, perhaps most importantly, their influence on the industry. These are the women that you often see speaking at industry events, working on various committees or negotiating tough deals.

Every year we select new women in the wireless industry to honor, so please check out the 2008 and 2009 list to see our past honorees.

And if there's a woman in the wireless industry that you think deserves recognition, please use the comments section to tell us why. --Sue
