Number 5: Apple’s Priya Balasubramaniam
She went from a little girl dreaming of doing great things to a global superstar engineer. Today, Priya Balasubramaniam is vice president of Apple’s iPhone Operations. She’s responsible for the organization that handles Apple’s supply chain and manufacturing for iPhones. We don’t know how many people it involves but we understand that her team is massive and global.
Her influence is global, too. For instance, she’s been instrumental in negotiating a new deal to manufacture Apple products in India, the Wall Street Journal reported.
Balasubramaniam has been at Apple since 2001, working her way up in the international supply chain team.
Thank you, Business Insider, for sharing these global engineers with us!
