I started at IBM with a very extensive background in designing, stemming from a foundation in fine arts. Having a background in design allowed me to describe and see the importance of art, not only through its principles, but also how it relates to design thinking. I have two Adobe Certifications in Adobe Photoshop and Adobe Dreamweaver and I am a member of a wide range of design and technology organizations such as NSBE (National Society of Black Engineers), and EPT (Epsilon Pi Tau), the Leading International Society for Technology.
I earned badges as I became more proficient in agile and design thinking. IBM Value: Innovation that Matters, for Our Company and for the World

Wisdom is the Power to put Our Time and Our Knowledge to the Proper Use.
Around 40% of the deals I worked on I was requested to work directly on site with the deal team in solutioning, design thinking workshops or win-themes. I was required several times to directly present my deliverable to the client in orals. I created high-end, innovative deliverables around 70% of the time. A large amount of these deliverables were microsites or web applications. Some important deliverables include a microsite I created for CitiGroup in 2017 which resulted in a win of 50 million dollars.
In addition to Citigroup I created two journey murals for State of Alabama and Federated Co-Operatives Limited in 2017 which resulted in a combined win of 38 million and a microsite I create for AIG in 2017 which resulted in a win of 77 million dollars. I worked two very large wins (totally over 1.1 billion), of Amtrak in the Spring 2017; and Capital One in the Fall of 2017. I have worked and won numerous international deals and was required, in the spring of 2018 to work in Mexico on CitiBananex. This resulted in being the largest deal at in Latin America.
I have worked hundreds of deals which added revenue growth to IBM market value. IBM Value: Dedication to every Client’s Success

You will have many more Goals in the years ahead.
But do not confuse a Goal with a Purpose.
During my first month at IBM I was required to represent our division at the Manager Directors’ meeting in Armonk, New York. This meeting consisted of our CEO, Ginni Rometty, talking to directors of the largest accounts at IBM how they could be more effective. While at the meeting I showcased a portal for the managing director of Pfizer as a way of showing him what we offered as a division. Besides attending the meeting another project I worked on was creating client-facing portals for some of the largest IBM accounts.
Working with the account holder, Jo Welsh, a director from the digital commerce division, I helped develop web portals for Morgan Stanley, MetLife and Pepsi. Another project I worked on was helping redesign and develop the career progression website. This project was essential to allowing people find jobs within their career. In addition to these two projects, I also created the SDS logo, the SDS website and SDS YourLearning website. These two websites were created to help IBMers learn about SDS and what we contribute to IBM.

Director, Strategic Services
Very impressed with attitude, skills and teamwork. So much respect that he will be the only Designer on my deals upon request. Coming in and working long hours, working with team and then adjusting schedule to help in orals was a monumental ask. Jibari not only accomplished it... he did so impressively. Pay him more... He deserves it. :))
Executive Client Solution
Hi Jibari, I really appreciate your flexibility and innovative ideas to provide a simple yet compelling way to provide customers a way to consume the information we want to share with them in an interactive way. The microsites you have pulled together for my teams have enabled us to achieve very interactive and conversational presentations for our customers. It is always a pleasure working with you. You’ve gone above and beyond on every occasion. Thank you!
Deal Strategist, SDS Q2C
I appreciate both your sense for clean design and your hard work ethic. I can always count on your designs to be appealing and to never overwhelm the message or solution content. For the most recent SDS Portal and YourLearning Companion microsites, you took our very, very primitive wire-frames and interpreted them into appealing, well-organized and easy to navigate pages. I loved the way you put yourself in the users’ shoes, making navigation intuitive with multiple and logical paths to rapidly find content. Your layouts are often more intuitive than the best of w3 sites.
Cloud Business Development Executive. Financial Services
Thank your for your guidance and help in making the Vanguard Manifest an interactive site. This will be a big help in us collaborating more closely with this account. I look forward to working with you and you teaching me to edit and maintain this going forward. Thank you!

I look forward to working with you on future projects. Thanks again.

Thank you for your leadership working together as a team and collaborating with others in our organization to make the deal squad portal relevant and user friendly, we appreciate you taking the leadership and communicating with leaders how the project is doing and the measurements of the portal. Well done in uniting to get things done!
Deal Strategist, SDS Q2C
I’ve very much enjoyed working with Jibari over the years, and have watched him grow into his Q2C role and become a leader in our squads. I have yet to work on a microsite with him, but appreciate his expertise there and look forward to doing so! This is a fantastic option to offer our teams. I appreciate his leadership in helping teams with proposal and orals prep, and know that his expanded knowledge of our solutions helps him guide the teams well in this respect.
