Any one of this executives would make for a deserving winner of the award. But for me, Akao may well be the favorite, simply because of the mess Renesas was left with after the Japan quake. To get the fabs back up and running ahead of schedule required a very impressive company-wide effort, even while Japan as a country was still reeling from the disaster. That takes inspiring leadership. I also think that the impressive turnaround of Cadence under Lip-Bu Tan deserves a lot of consideration.

I like to read about the persons behind the companies and how they influence their success. Many times the difficult and negative events shake things up to either improve them or remove the weak. "When the going gets tough, the tough get going". That is what happened with Renesas and Cadence. And really impressive that move of cutting paychecks to survive in the case of Juki Automation Systems. An the winner is... ?
