FBI gets new systems chief

Veteran IBM Corp. executive Bob E. Dies has been named assistant director of the FBI's Information Resources Division.

'Bob Dies is the right man at the right time for perhaps the toughest job in the FBI today,' FBI Director Louis J. Freeh said.

Dies, who replaces Carolyn Morris, will oversee the day-to-day management of FBI's systems. His first task will be the implementation of the eFBI initiative, through which the bureau plans to improve its intra-agency information sharing.

Dies recently retired as the general manager of IBM's network and personal computer division. He began his career at IBM in 1969 and became the company's corporate vice president in 1990.

Dies has a bachelor's degree in mathematics from the University of Oklahoma.
