CEO Presence, Pt 1
Despite extensive research utilizing all of the tools offered by LinkedIn, no profiles could be found for the CEOs of Mitsubishi, IBM, and/or Boeing. As such, the appropriate cells of the attached spreadsheet have been marked N/A.
- Upon learning that no LinkedIn profile exists for Osamu Masuko, the CEO of Mitsubishi, we turned to other popular social media networks - including Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook - to determine whether any profiles existed for him.
- While we were able to identify a tweet from the company which references Osamu Masuko, no Twitter profile could be found for him specifically.
- Similarly, no profile could be found on Instagram or Facebook.
- Similarly, upon learning that no LinkedIn profile exists for IBM's CEO, Ginni Rometty, we turned to other popular social networking sites - Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram - to determine whether she could be found there.
- Rometty does have a Twitter profile, on which she has over 30,000 followers. However, she has never tweeted, nor does she follow any accounts.
- A public profile for Ginni Rometty was found on Facebook; however, the page has never been updated and does not have any posts or photos on it. However, it does have over 4,000 likes.
- Finally, when no LinkedIn profile could be found for Boeing's CEO, Dave Calhoun, we turned to social media to find whether he had engaged on Twitter, Facebook, or Instagram.
- While our Twitter search returned a number of results for individuals named Dave Calhoun, as well as a company profile for Boeing, no profile could be found for the company's CEO.
- Similarly, no profile could be found on Facebook or Instagram.
In attempting to locate a LinkedIn profile for Osamu Masuko, Ginni Rometty, and Dave Calhoun, we began by using LinkedIn's "people" search function. Specifically, we searched the site using both their names and that of the company for which they are the CEO, as well as their name in conjunction with the job title of "CEO" and "Chief Executive Officer". While this provided a number of results, none were for the correct person.
We further looked up each of the companies' LinkedIn profiles and attempted to find a link to Masuko's, Rometty's, and/or Calhoun's in that way. However, while we were able to identify the profile of numerous employees at Mitsubishi, IBM, and Boeing, no profile could be found for their CEOs. As such, the appropriate cells on the spreadsheet have been marked N/A.
