Networking With Advisor's References

My advisor is well-known and he gave me the names of several people at various companies. Unfortunately, they are all vice-president/CEO type of people. What is the best way to handle this? Knowing that a lot of these people are extremely busy, I asked them if they could give me names of other people within the company to contact, and have given them my resume. Was that the right thing to do?
