We are delighted to see that IBM has appointed our advisor, Gary D. Cohn, a former Goldman Sachs executive and chief economic adviser to the President, as Vice-Chairman and a member of its Executive Leadership Team.

Mr. Cohn will work on business development, public advocacy, client services, and client-relationship management.  “I am honored to be joining IBM, one of the world’s most important companies, providing technology that helps organizations be agile and resilient in unpredictable times,” Cohn said. 

“With the company’s long history of innovation and transformation for every technology era, and a focused growth strategy that will capitalize on the enormous opportunity in hybrid cloud and AI, this is an exciting time to begin working alongside Arvind, the IBM team and IBM’s incredible roster of clients,” he added.

“IBM is very fortunate to have Gary as it’s vice chair,” said Starling CEO Stephen Scott.  “If he brings the leadership at IBM the same energy, talent and intellect as we have benefitted by at Starling, then I have no doubt that his appointment will be transformative for IBM.” 

Starling announced the appointment of Cohn to its Risk & Governance Advisory Board last year. You can click here to see the full announcement.
