Personnel File - December 2007: Women Executives

Rusine Mitchell-Sinclair

It’s not the way the cookie usually crumbles, but Rusine Mitchell-Sinclair, 55, stepped down as IBM’s top Tar Heel executive — the first woman in that post — to be CEO of Girl Scouts – North Carolina Coastal Pines, created by merging two councils covering 41 counties in the eastern half of the state. A 26-year Big Blue veteran, she was VP of strategy and implementation of IBM Global Services. The Raleigh resident now runs a bigger operation: IBM employs 13,000 in the state; the council has more than 32,000 girls and nearly 10,000 adult members.
