    I would go with Howard Schultz of Starbucks. Not only did he come back to save the Company (ala Steve Jobs), he also sent a letter to all shareholder in September 2011 urging all to withhold any political contributions until Congress cuts the gridlock and establishes a fair and workable debt and deficit plan.

    If we are talking technical CEO's there are some good ones, but watching Bill Gates take DOS and turn it into an Empire was amazing to watch. Apple, IBM, WordPerfect, Lotus 123, Borland, Novell... it was amazing to watch. I worked for 4 years with my Novell certifications waiting for Novell to begin competing. Until they gave up thier lead waiting for smaller Microsoft to catch up... It was sad. I decieded to get out of the Novell business. Today Microsoft is the Giant, but watching Microsoft knock down Giant after Giant ... I couldn't help but be impressed. As easy as it is to hate Micrsoft, I never bet against Microsoft when Bill Gates was in charge.

    I know that my vote for the Tech CEO that I admire most will probably not go over too well, but I have always admired Larry Ellison, Oracle CEO. As co-founder of Oracle Corporation, the Oracle has made major contributions to business technology since its inception, either in-house developed or through acquisitions, and continues to maintain positive forward momentum amidst challenging economic times. Where would we be without Oracle technologies and business solutions? Some would say better off, but I would say that many companies use and benefit from Oracle products. Thank you Larry Ellison.

    I would vote for Stephen Elop, Nokia's CEO. Most people were skeptical about the Nokia-Microsoft deal when it was announced last year, but many (including me) have changed their minds after seeing the great phones that Nokia has put in the market with the Windows Phone OS, and how the market and the media have reacted to them. Although Nokia was still selling millions of phones in other parts of the world, it was loosing the small market share they had here in America quickly, but it looks like it is on track to be an important competitor in the future. It must have been a very tough decision (the microsoft deal), but it seems that it was a smart move.
