Change is coming so quickly to the media business these days that it’s well nigh impossible to keep track of whose latest moves are worth following. But that’s just what Variety has endeavored to do for its second annual Digital Entertainment Impact list, timed to this week’s CES.

The goal is to throw a spotlight on the executives uniquely poised to make some noise in 2016, whether they’re undertaking a new initiative deserving of attention or stepping into a new job with a mandate for innovation. It wasn’t easy to winnow the list down to 30 men and women (31 counting one duo) — though requiring 100% turnover from last year’s list helped decide some tough choices. In short, these deserving execs (in alphabetical order) are the ones to watch.
