Lindsay Rae McIntyre, the former executive of International Business Machines Corp (IBM) who got sued by the company has been hired as the new chief diversity officer by Microsoft Corp claiming the violation of a non-competitive agreement for one-year. Lindsay Rae McIntyre resigned from International Business Machines Corp (IBM) all of a sudden while he possessed very confidential and sensitive information about the diversity strategies, technologies, innovations and hiring targets of IBM as stated by the company in the federal court of New York in the lawsuit filed by them. On one hand, Lindsay Rae McIntyre could not be reached out for his comments and on the other Microsoft too was not available immediately to comment outside their regular business hours.

The complaint was made by IBM saying that Lindsay Rae McIntyre was using their confidential as well as sensitive information whether it was on purpose or not that was placing the company at a huge disadvantage. As per the LinkedIn profile of McIntyre, he was appointed as the human resources Vice President and the chief diversity officer at IBM. IBM has stated that it will enforce McIntyre’s non-competition agreement for a period of 12 months and in the meantime recover the equity compensation from her which she has lost by violating her duties mentioned in the contract to IBM.

Bloomberg has however stated citing the lawyers of Lindsay Rae McIntyre that Microsoft has got nothing to do with the information of IBM and that the diversity-related trade secrets of IBM are of no value to the company and that McIntrye will not be able to use that information in the new role that has been provided to her.
