I never heard of Virginia Rometty before she was named as the new CEO of IBM. She replaces Sam Palmisano, who ran IBM for a decade.
Rometty is a bit of an IBM lifer -- she joined the company in 1981. Virginia moved up from a systems analyst to launching IBM's Global Business Services.
There are too few female tech CEOs, and many don't last that long. Carly Fiorina was an HP short timer and later lost a California Senate race. Meg Whitman ran eBay and later lost a California governer's race. Diane Greene ran VMware, quite well I'd say, but was eventually deposed.
