Personnel Chief Retires
NEW YORK (AP) _ IBM’s senior vice president of personnel, Walton E. Burdick, will retire at the end of May, the company said Tuesday.
Burdick, 60, will be ending a 38-year career with the computer company. He had agreed last summer to stay beyond IBM’s traditional retirement age.
He joined International Business Machines Corp. in Endicott, N.Y., in 1955 and held a number of personnel management positions before becoming vice president in 1972. Burdick was elected a senior vice president and appointed to IBM’s corporate management board in 1989.
A replacement was not immediately named.
