Daniel Hesse, Sprint-Nextel

This is the pick of my colleague, Brian Sullivan. Since Hesse took over the job in December 2007, Sprint’s stock has lost 80 percent of its value. Sales have also tumbled – down 16.2 percent. Never mind that the company was already hobbled by the time he arrived; his leadership appeared in question earlier this year when Sprint’s board essentially overruled him by rejecting his $8 billion deal to buy MetroPCS, in Brian's opinion. “I guess the only good thing is that losses have declined,” Brian says. “But it is still losing money.”
