The Wall Street Journal: IBM CEO Ginni Rometty defends role on Trump advisory panel

International Business Machines Corp. IBM, +0.38% Chief Executive Ginni Rometty sent a memo to employees defending her decision to advise President Donald Trump, the latest example of a major business leader grappling with concerns over how to engage with the new administration.

The memo, which was sent on Thursday but hadn’t been made public before Monday, came after Rometty met with Trump earlier this month as part of a committee of business leaders convened to advise the White House.

“IBM leaders have been engaged directly with every U.S. president since Woodrow Wilson, and this was my ninth such meeting since becoming CEO,” she wrote.
