ONE TO WATCH:

Suzanne Delaney, ED, Brand Leader, Breast/Prostate, AstraZeneca

An AZ vet, Delaney directs strategy for four of the drug giant's oncology brands, including Armidex, with over $1.25 billion in global sales last year. She won plaudits from her early days carrying the bag, but once she began managing people, her career really took flight. Her model of leadership is based on authenticity. "I don't think age equates in any way to great leadership," she says.
