Global Telecoms Business magazine has published its annual list of 100 business leaders from telecom industry across the world wherein it has ranked Tata Communications’ Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer, N Srinath, at number 8 and its Chief Operating Officer, Vinod Kumar, at 60 in its global telecom power list.
The twist is that the magazine ranks Tata Communications N Srinath ahead of Bharti’s Chairman and group CEO, Sunil Mittal in the global telecom power list. Well this doesn’t really comes as a surprise as N Srinath was the sole Indian in last year’s top 10 list. Sunil Bharti Mittal, who is today considered to be one of the most influential man in the Indian telecom industry ranked at number 18.
The other Indians in the top 25 are Punit Garg, President and CEO, Reliance Globalcom (21), and Rajeev Suri, CEO of Nokia Siemens Networks (25).
