Michael Dell to Head Technology CEO Council

Dell CEO Michael Dell has been tabbed as the chairman of the Technology CEO Council. Dell previously served as the chair in 2001 and 2003.

The council was created in 1989 to advance policies to promote innovation and U.S. competitiveness through technology leadership. The tech council plays an active role in Washington, D.C. regarding the important challenges the industry faces. Just last week CEO’s met with policymakers to discuss how technology companies could help with the current economy.

“At this time of economic uncertainty and challenges, it’s more important than ever that the business community work closely with elected leaders and policymakers to help our economy grow and prosper and create jobs for Americans,” said Dell, who begins a two-year term as chairman.

As a whole, Technology CEO member companies generate $250 billion in annual revenues and employ more than 700,000 workers. The previous chairman was Samuel J. Palmisano, the chairman and CEO of IBM.
