IBM's Sam Palmisano visits New Zealand

Palmisano did not have time to see clients or media during the rare visit

IBM chief executive and chairman Sam Palmisano visited New Zealand on Friday, following a visit to Australia earlier last week. The last time an IBM chief executive visited New Zealand was in 1986, when John Akers visited Auckland and Wellington, reports The Dominion Post. Palmisano spoke to about 300 staff and 80 customers in Auckland. According to IBM New Zealand spokeswoman Courtney Allen, Palmisano did not have time for one-on-one meetings with clients in Auckland, or for media interviews during his trip to Australia and New Zealand, reports The Dominion Post.
