Virginia Rometty steps down

Although the report suggest that she is gonna still be the Executive chairman of the board all through the year, but after that she is retiring for good and calling it quit.😣

Her replacement you might also know is one Arvind Krishna who is at present the head of IBM’s cloud business. For those who don’t know him too well, Krishna was the key player during IBM $34 billion Red Hat acquisition. (wow, that a lot of cash right there)

According to Rometty, Krishna was “the right CEO for the next era at IBM.”

Also in statement by IBM Rometty said that “Arvind has grown IBM’s Cloud and Cognitive Software business and led the largest acquisition in the company in the company’s history. Through his multiple experiences running businesses in IBM, Arvind has built an outstanding track record of bold transformations and proven business results, and is an authentic, values-driven leader.


He is well-positioned to lead IBM and its clients into the cloud and cognitive era.”

James Whitehurst who was the CEO of the Red Hat company before been acquired by IBM is gonna be stepping in as IBM’s president.

Together we hope to see Whitehurst and Krishna take IBM to great heights.
