Edward Sebold Named General Counsel for Kyndryl, The Independent MIS Business to Spin Out From IBM
Kyndryl, the independent company that will be created after the separation of the Managed Infrastructure Services business of IBM, announced that Edward Sebold, currently Vice President and Assistant General Counsel of IBM, will join the Kyndryl executive team as General Counsel.
Kyndryl will be a global leader in the management and modernization of IT infrastructure, and its previously announced separation is expected to occur by the end of 2021.
“Ed Sebold is recognized as a great lawyer and an outstanding leader,” said Martin Schroeter, Kyndryl’s chief executive officer. “His experience and management skills will be an asset to the purpose-led culture that will put Kyndryl at the heart of progress for our customers around the world.”
Sebold has a quarter-century of expertise in the legal and regulatory issues facing global enterprises. He comes to Kyndryl after overseeing IBM’s global litigation team and network of outside counsel firms, as well as managing legal teams that worked with IBM’s Watson Health and the company’s mergers and acquisitions unit, most notably in helping to close IBM’s $34 billion acquisition of Red Hat in 2019. Prior to joining IBM in 2012, Sebold was a partner at Jones Day in the firm’s Cleveland and Houston offices, and counseled clients in the banking, finance, health care and manufacturing industries.
