Education: Bachelor's degree in mathematics from the University of Oklahoma.
At IBM: Worked for 30 years, most recently as general manager of its
Network and Personal Computer Division.
Before the FBI: Lived in Westport, Conn., with his family, where he
worked on his church's Web site.
Management style: "Action oriented," he said. Standing 6 feet 7 inches
tall, Dies is aware that his height can be intimidating. He tries to compensate
for this by empowering people around him. "I don't do well in a hierarchal
situation. That's not my strength."
