Ex-Bluemix global program director, 60, sues Big Blue
Jonathan Langley joined Big Blue in 1993, and worked his way up the ranks over the next 24 years.
Then, in 2017, as worldwide program director and sales lead of the Bluemix software-as-a-service, he was let go.
Had he "been younger, and especially if he had been a millennial, IBM would not have fired him," his filing claimed.
Langley, of Texas, USA, was seemingly doing very well for himself within Big Blue.
Curiously, the month before, though, he was warned privately by his boss's boss – Andrew Brown, veep of worldwide sales of IBM's hybrid cloud software – that he needed to look for a new job, it is claimed.
