IBM Corporation has named Arvind Krishna as its new Chief Executive Officer, replacing longtime CEO Virginia Rometty. 57 year old Krishna, is currently the head of IBM’s cloud and cognitive software unit and was a principal architect of the company’s purchase of Red Hat, the world's leading provider of enterprise open source solutions, including Linux.

Rometty, who became IBM's first female CEO in 2012, will continue as executive chairman and serve through the end of the year, and will retire after almost 40 years with the company.
