Oak Brook, Ill. & Monarch Beach, Calif. – CenterPoint Properties announced today that it ranked 24 on this year’s InformationWeek 500 – a list of top technology innovators in the United States. CenterPoint’s 2012 ranking marks its fourth consecutive inclusion as well as its third top 25 achievement.

“CenterPoint is honored to be included among the best and most innovative companies on InformationWeek 500’s annual list,” said Scott Zimmerman, Chief Information Officer of CenterPoint. “Our Information Technology team works hard to meet CenterPoint’s growing technology needs through effective and cutting-edge systems that help the company achieve its goals.”

“The InformationWeek 500 has recognized the most innovative users of business technology for 24 years, and this year’s innovations were particularly impressive,” said InformationWeek Editor In Chief Rob Preston. “What the editors looked for are unconventional approaches—new technologies, new models, new ways of grabbing business opportunities and solving complex business problems with IT.”

InformationWeek identifies and honors the nation’s most innovative users of information technology with its annual 500 listing, and also tracks the technology, strategies, investments, and administrative practices of America’s best-known companies. Past overall winners include PACCAR Inc., The Vanguard Group, CME Group, National Semiconductor, Con-Way, and Principal Financial Group. 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.

The annual list was revealed last night at a gala awards ceremony at the exclusive InformationWeek 500 Conference, which took place at the St. Regis Monarch Beach Resort, Dana Point, CA. Additional details on the InformationWeek 500 can be found online at
