Geek of the Week: Robert LeBlanc

Last week we launched a feature called Geek of the Week. Every week CloudWedge will nominate a ‘Geek of the week’ to any CloudLeader who has been in the news in the last week that we feel deserves special mention or praise.

We are happy to announce this weeks’ Geek of the Week is none other than Robert LeBlanc, Senior VP of IBM. IBM has been in the news a lot lately with the amazing success of Pulse2014, and we were really impressed by LeBlanc’s show of sportsmanship when he participated in the BlueMix demonstration onstage at the conference. We were even more impressed however, by the journey he has taken to get to where he is today. LeBlanc first joined IBM Canada in 1981 as systems programmer trainee in the Toronto Laboratory and has since worked his way up to the top to become Senior Vice President.
