Joelle Williams

Offering Manager, Hybrid Cloud @ IBM

Drawing upon over 20 years of experience in retail store operations and buying with Bloomingdales, Hecht’s, and Macy’s, Joelle spent 6 years as an Adjunct Professor at the Fashion Institute of Technology and LIM College, allowing her to share her passion for the retail industry.  As a lifelong learner and one who was always intrigued by the intersection of business and creativity,  she pursed a degree in design thinking, earning a Strategic Design MBA from Philadelphia University.

Joelle recently joined IBM having completed the company Offering Management and Design Bootcamp.  She views this latest career growth opportunity as the continuum of bridging her past and present, and the curation of memorable experiences for both internal and external customers.  In that same vein, Joelle sees connecting users and products as the evolution of products designed as visceral experiences for the end user.
