Each year, IBM honors its top technologists as IBM Fellows.

Among the best and brightest of IBM’s global workforce, this year's 12 new IBM Fellows come from Asia, the Americas and Europe. They have worked across multiple business units to assist our clients in their digital transformations and migrations to AI and Cloud. These new IBM Fellows also have energized the company's internal business practices, and have helped to establish and maintain IBM’s reputation as the world’s responsible—and dependable—steward of technology.
