Same Cast, New Roles
IBMs partner executive lineup has changed quite a bit in recent months.
Starting at the top, Peter Rowley replaces Buell Duncan as general manager of IBMs Global Business Partners program. Rowley, who was appointed in November, was formerly general manager of IBMs Global Midmarket business.
Duncan became general manager of IBMs eServer iSeries business.
In other changes, Angelica Horaitis earlier this year was named VP of Global Channels Marketing at IBM. She reports to Rowley. Ian Bonner, formerly VP of marketing for Global Business Partners, is now VP of development for Global Business Partners, a role that spans all business-partner categories. Bonner also reports to Rowley.
Reporting to Horaitis is Anne Smith, VP of systems integrators and Web integrators. Mark Hanny, who had been responsible for Web integrators, is now VP of worldwide channel marketing for IBMs software group. Also reporting to Horaitis are Lucy Newsome, director of ISV Value Net sales; Art Baron, marketing manager of emerging technology; Randy Filinski, program director of Linux; and Don Daughters, director of global sector marketing.
