All my faves have already been mentioned, but Gus Dudgeon's work with Elton John back in the '70s is virtually unsurpassed IMHO. Just great orchestrations and arrangements par excellence!
Some of my faves:
Roy Thomas Baker
This gent has a very impressive resume.
Bob Rock, Mutt Lange, Rick Rueben
Alan parsons, butch vig, chuck Norris
David Foster . . with the Tubes!
Mitchell Froom. Many of my favourite albums have been produced by him and I especially love his work with Sheryl Crow, Bonnie Raitt, Ron Sexsmith and Richard Thompson.
No Tom Dowd mention yet??????
Daniel Lanois was the first to pop in to my head. Then I saw someone mention Steve Lillywhite, so he's on my list too. And then there is Brian Eno.
In addition to many of the already mentioned:
Dennis Lambert & Brian Potter (Glen Campbell 1975-76)
Bob Crewe (The Four Seasons)
Johnny Franz (Dusty Springfield, The Walker Brothers)
And nobody mentioned Manfred Eicher yet?

We're only supposed to name our favorites.
But seriously, Manfred Eicher has produced several of the top Norwegian jazz players - which actually says a lot.
I agree he's a genius but the one black spot on his resume is : Layla.
I don't care what anybody says - it's a horrible-sounding record from start to finish.
How about a vote for the Chess Bros ?
And I'll throw another vote in for Jimmy Page.
Thank you ! +100
I also like stuff done by Jon Brion & John Parish (Tracy Chapman's let it rain)
Another one for Mitchell Froom for the First 2 Del Feugos Records .
