Welcome to The Technology Power List for October! This will be the first update of the Power List for the Technology industry. You can view September’s Tech Power List here.
Why have a Power List for the Tech space? Because I wanted to highlight workers that are doing a great job of leveraging social media to connect with customers, partners and clients. It’s damn hard to work in the tech space and still carve out time to create engaging content for social media. I am hopeful that by putting a spotlight on a few of the tech all-stars, it will make their jobs a little easier.
If you want to view all the candidates for the Tech Power List, follow this list on Twitter. If you work in the tech space and would like to be considered for the Power List, then follow me on Twitter and reply to me and ask to be included. Please state clearly in your profile bio what company you work for in tech, and your position. And the Power List isn’t limited to just big brands, startups and smaller tech companies are just fine.

So enough yakkin’, let’s get to the Tech Power List for October!
The Top 10 will be ranked 1-10. There will be a number after their name in parentheses that shows the change in their score this month versus last.
I am SO excited for this list because we have some new entries!!! It’s so exciting to see people entering the Power List. Now those of you that will see your scores and/or rank drop, keep in mind that it’s likely due to there simply being a larger pool of candidates this time versus last month.
The Technology Power List for October:
1 – Pat Gelsinger, CEO at Intel, Power List Score – 91 (+1). Pat hits it out of the park, once again. High volume of tweets, good mix of reposts with original content as well. Mostly focused on Intel, but a few personal tweets around scripture mixed in as well. Bravo. And it’s highly unusual to see the CEO at a major brand being this active on Twitter, and curating, creating and sharing such good content. Well done, Mr. Gelsinger, you continue to set the pace for the Technology Power List!
2 – Sergio Raguso, Regulation Manager @ Siemens, Power List Score – 86. (+6) So last month, the take on Sergio’s profile that he was prolific as a tweeter, but I wanted to see a bit of content with his personal take on the work he does, or even life in general. His frequency of content is still off the charts, but in September he’s started mixing in some tweets with more personal content, and that’s much appreciated. A nice 6-point jump in score for Sergio this month.
3 – Greg Joswiak, SVP of Marketing at Apple, Power List Score – 85. (-1) A solid month for Greg, even with a ton of big news coming out of Apple that could have kept him busy and off Twitter. Nice output of content, and he’s still solidly in the mix as one of the leaders in the Tech Power List.
4 – Sushail Kakar, Developer Relations @ Livepeer, Power List Score – 84 (-). Sushail’s content is so geeky and nerdy, I just love it! High volume of content, good mix, notice he gets very good engagement on his content, he’s focused on techy work that developers and even tech hobbyists can relate to. Great job, Sushail!
5 – Lauren Cooney, VP Java Cloud Services, Oracle, Power List Score – 80 (+3). So Lauren’s profile is the first one on the list that has a lot of personal content, even moreso than tweets about the work she does at Oracle. But that’s ok, because she does tweet semi-regularly about her work. And her volume is off the charts, and that’s why her score jumps 3 points this month, looking forward to what comes this month.
6 – Stella Low, Chief of Corporate Affairs and Communications @ HP, Power List Score – 79. New entry alert! Congrats to Stella who joins the Tech Power List at #6. Good volume, nice mix of content focused on HP, but also sprinkles in some personal content and her original takes on the industry and work she does. Nice, welcome aboard!
7 – Krithika Muthukumar, VP of Marketing @ OpenAI, Power List Score – 78. Another new entry, congrats Krithika! And wow, cool job title! Krithika was suggested by multiple people and she has a pretty good Twitter profile. Solid volume of content, focused on her work and the AI/Tech space. As with most of the others on this list, as her volume increases, her score can only go up. Welcome aboard!
8 – Maria Poveromo, SVP and Chief Communications Officer @ Cisco, Power List Score – 77 (+5). So the analysis for last month was that I loved Maria’s content, I just wanted to see more of it. She increased her tweeting a bit in Sept, and her score jumped as a result. Awesome! Let’s hope this is the start of a trend so we can see her score soon hit 80.
9 – Jennifer Davis, Corporate Affairs @ Dell, Power List Score – 76 (-). So Jennifer and Maria had about the same advice last month, loved both of their content, just wanted to see more of it. Still the same, love Jennifer’s content, hope she can pull herself away from doing amazing work at Dell to send out a few more tweets.
10 – Chloe Jones, Gaming Brand Manager @ Lenovo, Power List Score – 73. YAS! I am sooo happy to see Chloe on the Power List this month. I wanted to put her on the list last month, but I just couldn’t justify it then, because she had only posted a few times this year, at the time. But since last month’s Power List, she has tweeted several times, so she earned her way onto this month’s Power List. I love her content and I’m such a fan of the gaming and eSports space. Chloe please keep tweeting at the same rate as you did in September! I love your content and want to see you keep rising on the Power List!
So THREE new entries in this month’s Tech Power List! Congrats again to Chloe, Stella and Krithika! And overall, the scores were mostly up, which is great to see. This group as a whole definitely feels like it’s improved over last month, let’s hope we can continue to see growth in November’s Power List.
