USA, Minneapolis. Agribusiness giant Cargill announced that former Chairman, President and CEO of IBM, Virginia (Ginni) M. Rometty, had been elected to the Cargill Board of Directors.

“Ginni led the reinvention of IBM for the era of cloud and data by realigning their portfolio through organic and acquired growth. She also is a steadfast advocate for advancing diversity in the workplace, pioneering efforts that brought IBM into a more inclusive future. Through these efforts, Ginni has become a leading voice on technology ethics, business transformation and the workplace of the future. We are thrilled to bring her expertise and vision for purpose-driven corporations to Cargill,” said Dave MacLennan, Cargill’s Board Chair and CEO.


Rometty became CEO of IBM in 2012 and retired in 2020. She made bold changes during her tenure, notably leading the acquisition of 65 companies, including Red Hat, the largest acquisition in the company’s history. IBM also achieved record results in diversity and inclusion under her leadership. She enabled people of diverse backgrounds and education levels to participate in the digital economy, with IBM creating thousands of “New Collar” jobs and championing the reinvention of education around the world.
