Joseph M. Tucci ’84
Chairman, President, and CEO, EMC Corporation, Massachusetts

Joe Tucci is chairman, president, and chief executive officer of EMC Corporation. Mr. Tucci has been EMC’s chairman since January 2006 and president and chief executive officer since January 2001, one year after he joined the company as president and chief operating officer. He is also chairman of VMware Corporation.

Headquartered in Hopkinton, Mass., with approximately 40,000 employees operating in more than 60 countries, EMC is the world’s leading developer and provider of information infrastructure technology and solutions that enable organizations of all sizes to transform the way they compete and create value from their information. EMC reported revenues of $14.9 billion in 2008. Its current market capitalization places it among the 10 most valuable information technology product companies in the world.

Before joining EMC, Mr. Tucci directed the financial and operational rebirth of Wang Global during six years as its chairman and chief executive officer. At Wang, he guided the company through a rapid and successful emergence from Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection and transformed the company from a midrange computer manufacturer into a worldwide leader in networked technology services and solutions. In June 1999, Wang was acquired by Getronics NV.

Prior to joining Wang in 1990, Mr. Tucci was president of US information systems for Unisys Corporation, a position he assumed after the 1986 merger of Sperry and Burroughs that created Unisys. He began his career as a systems programmer at RCA Corporation and holds a bachelor’s degree from Manhattan College and an MBA in business policy from Columbia Business School.

Mr. Tucci is one of 150 chief executive officer members of the Business Roundtable and the former chairman of its Task Force on Education and the Workforce. He is one of nine chief executives who steer the Technology CEO Council, the IT industry’s leading public policy advocacy organization, and is a member of the executive committee of TechNet, a network of CEOs who work to advance the United States’ global leadership in innovation. In addition, he is a member of the board of directors of Paychex, Inc., a member of the board of advisors of the Carroll School of Management at Boston College, a member of the board of trustees of Northeastern University, a member of the advisory board of Tsinghua University in Beijing, and an overseer of the Boston Symphony Orchestra.
