83. Carolyn McIntyre

One out of every two California households subscribes to cable television. Carolyn McIntyre, president of the California Cable & Telecommunications Association says that’s just the beginning. McIntyre has a double-barreled job as the association’s manager and lobbyist. She is used to handling challenges – before joining CCTA, she was regional vice president of state governmental affairs for Sempra Energy, a job that involved navigating Sempra through the California Energy Crisis. And earlier than that, McIntyre was an undercover narcotics agent. She is on the board of directors of the CCTA-funded California Channel, and formerly served on the board of Woman Escaping a Violent Environment. She is a product of local schools – Sac State (1984) and Kennedy High School.
