Dell Named As New Chairman Of Tech CEO Group

The Technology CEO Council is expected to announce Monday that Michael Dell, chairman and CEO of computer maker Dell, has been tapped as its new chairman.

Dell succeeds IBM Chairman and CEO Samuel J. Palmisano as head of the council, an advocacy group made up of chief executives from major tech firms and aimed at promoting U.S. innovation and competitiveness. This is the second time Dell has chaired the group, having last held the post from 2001-2003.

"At this time of economic uncertainty and challenges, it's more important than ever that the business community work closely with elected leaders and policymakers to help our economy grow and prosper and create jobs for Americans," Dell said in a statement.

Among the issues the council is pushing for include changes to the nation's tax structure, expanded free trade, reforms to the U.S. immigration system, and increased use of technology in government, health care and energy. Other members of the group include the leaders of Applied Materials, Intel, Motorola Solutions and Xerox.
