Rich Hume/Mark Hennessy

When Ginni Rometty became CEO of IBM at the beginning of the year, she wasted little time tweaking Big Blue's management team. One move was to install Mark Hennessy (right in photo), a 30-year IBM veteran as channel chief, and shift Rich Hume, IBM's then-general manager of IBM global business partners, to run IBM's European operations out of Madrid. In a recent interview with CRN, Hennessy said he'll continue to push IBM partners toward solution-based sales.
