Industry veteran Ellen Hancock has joined a Californian Internet service provider and Web hosting firm, after peregrinating through IBM, National Semiconductor and latterly Apple.
She will become president of a private company called Exodus Communications, a firm with offices in the major cities of the US.
Hancock left Apple last summer, after being ousted in a boardroom coup, in which her boss and friend Gil Amelio, CEO of the company, also lost his job. Both had worked together previously at National Semiconductor.
But Hancock is best remembered as being one of the leading lights at IBM in pushing the now-doomed operating system OS/2 into the limelight 11 years ago.
