Strictly speaking, the "who/whom" is in the object role and thus you ought to use the object form "whom", but it is pretty rare these days for people to actually use the object form whom, rather than who, when dealing with a direct object. It is much more likely to be seen when the "person" is in the indirect object role: John is the person to whom I am giving this present. We haven't started saying "to who/for who/at who" yet, for the most part, but it will probably happen eventually, in a few more decades or centuries. Hard to predict.

In the past, "whom" was normally used as the object of a relative clause.
Nowadays, "who" is more often used, although some careful speakers think that it is more correct to use "whom".

The word is who, not whom.
