The huge influence of the high-tech sector is clear in the latest TheMarker Magazine list of Israelis with the most influence on the local economy.

High-tech executives landed all of the spots on the list from 11 though 23 on the list.
Topping the overall rankings are Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu (in first place), followed by Yedioth Ahronoth media group publisher Arnon Mozes and Attorney General Avichai Mendelblit.

Sharing 11th spot are two Israel Defense Forces: Maj. Gen. Nadav Padan, who heads the C4I and Cyber Defense Directorate; and a second person, who can only be identified by his first initial, Brig. Gen. K., who heads the much vaunted Unit 8200 of the Intelligence Corps, which has produced a large number of soldiers who went on to achieve success in establishing “Startup Nation” – the moniker authors Dan Senor and Saul Singer gave to Israel as a high-tech leader.
