IBM Names Virginia M. Rometty First Female CEO !!

Virginia M. Rometty is Senior Vice President of IBM. Yesterday, IBM announced that she will be the company's next CEO on Jan 01, 2012.

Rometty will succeed the outgoing Samuel Palmisano.This year, he turned 60, the traditional retirement age for IBM chief executves.

Samuel Palmisano says, Ginni’s (Rometty) long-term strategic thinking and client focus are seen in our growth initiatives, from cloud computing and analytics to the commercialization of Watson. She brings to the role of CEO a unique combination of vision, client focus, unrelenting drive, and passion for IBMers and the company’s future.

I know the board agrees with me that Ginni is the ideal CEO to lead IBM into its second century.
