Title: Senior VP of e-business and information technology
Company: 3Com Corp., Santa Clara, Calif.
Credentials: Since he is responsible for 3Com’s Web-enabled strategy and information systems, it is Connors’ job to know what is foremost on the minds of b-to-b customers. It helps that he’s well-groomed for that job, having previously served as 3Com’s senior VP of customer service. "With the increasing speed of business change and the greater global dispersion of our customers, partners, resellers, employees and suppliers, the Web is the perfect medium for getting the right information to the right people at the right time to make the best decisions," Connors said.
