Welcome to The Technology Power List for November! You can view past Tech Power Lists 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.

Here’s the Tech Power List for November:
1 – Pat Gelsinger, CEO at Intel, Power List Score – 91 (-). Another solid month for Pat. I think Pat’s account is a good template for any executive or manager who wants to learn how to use Twitter effectively as a communication tool. He has a very solid volume of tweets, around a dozen a month. And his tweets are varied in content, some are RTs, some are focused on his company, some are personal observations. Great volume and a great mix of content. Pat is 3 for 3 in leading the Tech Power List at #1, congrats Pat!
2 – Lauren Cooney, VP Java Cloud Services, Oracle, Power List Score – 86 (+6). Banger of a month for Lauren. Volume of tweets up again, and she has a better balance of work and personal content this month. Gotta reward the effort, great job Lauren!
3 – Sergio Raguso, Regulation Manager @ Siemens, Power List Score – 85. (-1) Every month I struggle a bit with where to rank Sergio. Of all the Power Lists I’ve done for multiple industries, Sergio’s volume of tweets puts everyone to shame. But the issue is, almost all of his tweets are retweets. Sometimes less is more, and I think that would apply to Sergio’s tweets. If he cut his volume in half, and sprinkled in a few more personal thoughts on his retweets, I think his engagement would jump as a result. Still, a mid-80s score is nothing to scoff at.
4 – Sushail Kakar, Developer Relations @ Livepeer, Power List Score – 84 (-). Pretty consistent performance from Sushail, as he has been at 84 all three months. His volume was down a bit for the first half of the month, but jumped at the end. That darned ‘work’ thing getting in the way of tweeting, it seems. If his volume continues at a higher pace for all of next month, I would assume his score will go up.
5 – Greg Joswiak, SVP of Marketing at Apple, Power List Score – 83. (-2) A bit of a slow month for Greg, although he did close out in the final few days with a jump in activity. Hopefully this will carry over into this month.
6 – Jennifer Davis, Corporate Affairs @ Dell, Power List Score – 82 (+6). Big month for Jennifer, a nice jump in volume, good mix of content. Well done, Jennifer!
7 – Meagen Eisenberg, CMO @ Laceworks, Power List Score – 81 (-). New entry alert! Actually Meagen made the first Tech Power List back in September, so she’s returning, congrats Meagen! Strong month for Meagen, a ton of tweets, mostly retweets. If Meagen mixes in a few more tweets with her original thoughts, the sky is the limit for her score.
8 – Stella Low, Chief of Corporate Affairs and Communications @ HP, Power List Score – 79 (-). A decent month for Stella, and her position at #8 is more a statement on how the quality of this Power List is improving than anything else.
9 – Krithika Muthukumar, VP of Marketing @ OpenAI, Power List Score – 78 (-). Same thing for Krithika as I said for Stella. She had a good month in October, her position is more about how strong this list is versus her performance.
10 – Sarah Luden, Communications @ Dell Tech, Power List Score – 76. New entry alert! Sarah joins with a solid first month, mix of reposts and some shares with her thoughts included, which I like. Well done and congrats Sarah!
One final note: This is the first Power List I’ve done where a couple of people didn’t make the cut based solely on their activity in October. Normally, I struggle on how to rank the top 5 spots in a Power List, and the bottom 5 are usually a lot easier. Not so with this edition of the Power List.
