Newmark Knight Frank Earns a Spot on 2009 InformationWeek 500 List of Top Technology Innovators Across America

Monarch Beach, CA (09/29/2009)

Leading full-service global commercial real estate services firm Newmark Knight Frank announced that it made the 2009 InformationWeek 500, an annual listing of the nation's most innovative users of business technology. The 2009 InformationWeek 500 companies were revealed on September 14, 2009 at an awards ceremony held during the InformationWeek 500 Conference at the St. Regis Monarch Beach Resort in Dana Point, California. The firm was chosen for its efforts in creating a new global website.

"The creation of our new website was a highly efficient, practical solution for supporting the rapid expansion and display of content in keeping up with the growth of the firm," says Barry Gosin, CEO of Newmark Knight Frank. "We are excited to have InformationWeek recognize one of our innovative business technology initiatives once again."

"For over 20 years, the InformationWeek 500 has honored the most innovative users of business technology," said InformationWeek Editor-in-Chief Rob Preston. "Year after year, InformationWeek 500 companies harness technology to improve efficiency, boost productivity, drive revenue, and establish a competitive advantage.  We applaud this year's winners, and the CIOs and other executives whose ingenuity and risk taking are at the center of business technology innovation."

InformationWeek identifies and honors the nation's most innovative users of information technology with its annual 500 listing, now in its 21st year, and also tracks the technology, strategies, investments and administrative practices of America's best-known companies.  Top winners have included:  Conway, National Semiconductor, Kimberly-Clark, Hilton Hotels and Unum.  The InformationWeek 500 rankings are unique among corporate rankings as it spotlights the power of innovation in information technology, rather than simply identifying the biggest IT spenders.
