May 16, 2011, NEW YORK, NY ––  Information Management magazine today unveiled its annual ranking of 25 Top Information Managers. The list recognizes leaders who have deployed and executed information management strategies that make their organizations significantly more competitive, efficient and cost-effective.

The 25 Top Information Managers ranking is compiled by the editors of Information Management and the information technology experts who contribute to the magazine. Throughout the year, they nominate chief information officers, chief technology officers, enterprise architects, and other technology leaders who are transforming their organizations though new applications of business intelligence, performance management, analytics, customer relationship management and other information systems.

The accomplishments of the nominees are verified by the Information Management editorial staff, which researches and interviews every nominee on their experiences, background, leadership style and accomplishments.

"These are the actual people behind the success stories in information management today," says Information Management editorial director James Ericson. “Their stories are real-world stories of information technology at work in the marketplace.”

The movers and shakers featured on this year’s list come from a wide range of companies including Credit Suisse, eBay, GlaxoSmithKline, Guess, HSBC, JetBlue, Lowes and Verizon. There are also a number of information managers from the public sector, including administrators from the U.S. General Services Administration and the U.S. Department of Energy.

This year’s list of top information managers includes:

- Bob Page, eBay’s VP of Analytics Platform and Delivery. Page directs the analytic activity at eBay, which handles 2 million queries each day from 6,000 internal users. His team's work enables information sharing and better decision-making at the online auction leader.

- Ellen Shepard, Teach for America’s CIO.  Shepard is pushing the use of customer-relationship management, human capital and financial systems at the non-profit organization, which recruits teachers for two-year assignments to urban and rural communities. Her work has maximized the recruiting, training and long-term participation of educators

- Terry Dinterman, JetBlue’s VP of Technology Services. Dinterman is playing an integral role in the airline’s transition from internal IT resources to managed services, a move designed to make the company more agile.

As it did last year, Information Management is planning to host The 25 Top Information Managers at a fall symposium in New York that will explore the latest thinking and best practices around information management.

"The symposium brings the ranking to life,” said Information Management Publisher Tony Carrini. “The 25 Top managers share their ideas and their experiences with their peers, enabling a powerful round of networking and learning.”

The rankings are available in their entirety at information-management.com and in the June-July issue of Information Management. A summary list of winners can be found on the magazine’s website (http://bit.ly/iMBF5N) as can an expanded description (http://bit.ly/lFj5KO) of each honoree.
