Title: Chairman/CEO, RBC Daniels
Education: BA, MBA, Dartmouth
Social Media Quotient: 7
Why Him? Even in a recession, RBC Daniels keeps completing M&As — including The Carlyle Group’s $1.7 billion acquisition of a stake in French cable op Numericable and Completel. Chalk some of that success up to Deevy’s long-standing relationships with most of the MSOs, programmers and other major players dating back to his days working with Bill Daniels. He has a reputation for integrity and knowledge of the financial world and the cable industry.
Worth Watching: It’s all about RBC Daniels’ ability to provide additional capital markets to clients.

The economy’s starting to look a little better.
