|Which is correct?
Diane Greene, _____ I admire very much, is no longer VMware’s CEO.
Who is a subject pronoun — just like he, she, and they.
Whom is an object pronoun — like him, her, and them.
Turn your sentence into a question: Who do you admire very much? I admire her. You wouldn’t say “I admire she.”
Need another easy way to remember? If Diane were a guy, you’d say “I admire him.” Him and whom both end in “m.”
