Is Charles Bennett one of the most prominent physicists alive??

I have been receantly introducing to quantum information and I have found that C. Bennett is almost in every publication or at least in a very considerable part of publications in information theory, which seems to be gaining a lot of strength, so I just want to hear your opinion about this. Also I would like to hear about other great physicists in this area that you may know.
