EMC co-founder becomes ambassador

Richard Egan, founder and chairman emeritus of storage leader EMC, was sworn in Friday as the new U.S. ambassador to Ireland. Egan has been gradually phasing out his involvment in EMC management. Earlier this year, he passed his chairman's post to then-CEO Mike Ruettgers. Joe Tucci then took the CEO position. Egan has said he will leave the EMC board to concentrate on his diplomatic duties.
