Mr. Donofrio brings to NACD a wide range of executive management skills and significant technological expertise.

He began his career in 1964 at IBM, where he remained for 44 years in increasingly responsible roles, including those of division president for advanced workshops, general manager of the large-scale computing division, and executive vice president of innovation and technology. In 2008 he was elected an IBM Fellow, the company's highest technical honor, and in the same year received the first U.S. National Nuclear Security Administration Gold Medal ever conferred on a non-U.S. government employee.

He has long focused on advancing educational and career development opportunities for underrepresented minorities and women in the STEM disciplines. This commitment has been recognized with numerous honors and awards. He is also a member of the National Academy of Engineering, a Fellow of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences, a Fellow of Britain's Royal Academy of Engineering, and the 2010 recipient of the IRI Medal. Recently he chaired a National Academy of Engineering initiative that resulted in the March 2015 release of a report titled Making Value for America: Embracing the Future of Manufacturing, Technology, and Work.
