IBM Global Financing Honored by AT&T as Outstanding Supplier


Commitment to excellence over the past year has earned IBM Global Financing, a division of IBM (NYSE: IBM), recognition as an outstanding supplier to AT&T Inc. (NYSE: T), one of the world’s leading data, voice, wireless and Internet services providers.

“We are proud of our long-standing tradition of providing unparalleled products and services to our business and residential customers,” said Maureen Merkle, president, AT&T Procurement. “We’re successful on that front in large part thanks to suppliers like IBM Global Financing that consistently go above and beyond the call of duty.”

IBM Global Financing received one of 39 supplier recognition awards for its work in helping AT&T deliver outstanding service to its customers during the past year. IBM Global Financing was recognized for its contributions in the Customer Service category.

“As a trusted financing partner, we are proud to provide AT&T with a comprehensive solution to conveniently refresh their technology devices, as well as replace them at end-of-lease in an environmentally safe and secure manner,” said John Callies, general manager of IBM Global Financing, which manages leases on AT&T employee laptops, desktops, printers and Intel-based servers.

As part of its annual supplier recognition program, AT&T took out a half-page ad in the June 5, 2007 edition of The Wall Street Journal to publicly thank the selected companies.
