Where: Penton Media
Why:Rowlands, former president-CEO of Thomson Financial took over as CEO of Penton Media on Nov. 1, succeeding John French. Her experience in guiding Thompson's transformation into an integrated global financial information and technology leader should serve her well in her new role, as Penton puts more emphasis on its digital operations. "At Thomson, we migrated virtually 50% of our revenue, about a billion dollars worth, from pure data/individual product delivery to more of a technology solution," she said. "Print is similar to this."
