Vice president for original series Holland won this year's best in tech contest by a considerable margin, with over 68% of reader's votes. Here's what Fortune's JP Mangalindan had to say about Holland:

For Netflix, this year has been about the release of compelling original content. The video-streaming service's 40 million-plus userbase have Cindy Holland to largely thank for that. Chief Content Officer Ted Sarandos has called the longtime Netflix executive instrumental to the development of new shows like the prison comedy-drama Orange is the New Black and Capitol Hill-schemer House of Cards. Indeed, the latter, starring Kevin Spacey, nabbed three Emmys, making it the first web-only series to do so.
