Today, Lenovo is a $50B+ company with customers in more than 160 countries. And we’re not stopping there. Each quarter, we expand – not just our business, but our ways of thinking, too. Instead of creating a single headquarters, we’ve instead introduced a series of centers of excellence, where our people from diverse backgrounds, experiences and skillsets come together to build truly innovative products and services. We’re continuously working to create a brighter future for ourselves – and for the world of technology.

It’s this type of attitude that’s made us as successful as we are – and enables us to grow even more. Throughout the history of our company, we’ve executed some of the most famous acquisitions in the industry – from buying the IBM PC Division more than a decade ago to our most recent acquisitions of Motorola Mobility and the IBM System x server business.

With a unique combination of groundbreaking products, a clear strategy and an unwavering commitment to operational excellence, we have a vision for today – and for the future. At Lenovo, we don’t believe in saying, “job done” because for us, it never is. There is always a better, more creative way to do things – and we want to continue finding it.

Join Lenovo and help us create what’s next.
