IBM Appoints Jonathan Adashek As New Chief Communications Officer

American multinational information technology company, IBM has appointed Jonathan Adashek as its new chief communications officer, replacing the outgoing Ray Day.

Adashek will lead IBM's global communications and corporate citizenship teams, effective January 13. He will report to senior VP of global markets Martin Schroeter.

"His experience working across large global organizations will prove valuable to our evolving communications approach across the company," Schroeter said in a memo to IBM's communications function.

"I am thrilled to be joining IBM and look forward to working alongside its world class communications and corporate citizenship teams. I have long admired the company’s position at the intersection of business and technology across industries and around the world. It is exciting to be part of a team who is going to help ensure communications and citizenship support the business and its objectives," Adashek said in a statement.

Adashek takes on the role after departing his post as global communications lead for the Renault-Nissan-Mitsubishi Alliance, where he reported to chairman Carlos Ghosn prior to his arrest and subsequent escape from Japan to Lebanon.

He took on the Alliance role in Paris in early 2018, after previously serving as Nissan's chief communications officer in Yokohama. He joined Nissan in 2015 from Microsoft, where he was the GM of communications strategy. Before that, he was EVP of Edelman, where he served as a global client relationship manager.
