24. Rick Walsh

Rick Walsh, Knob Hill Group president. (Last year: unranked.) You may not know Walsh's current company. But you certainly know some of the beleaguered agencies this former Darden Restaurants exec has been tapped to reform — like Florida's Blood Centers and Workforce Central Florida. Walsh, 59, is viewed as a steady hand for troubled institutions.
