CHICAGO, June 22, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- DTZ, a global leader in commercial real estate services, announced today that the firm has been honored as a member of IDG's CIO magazine's 2015 CIO 100. The 28th annual awards program recognizes organizations around the world that exemplify the highest level of operational and strategic excellence in information technology (IT).
"For 28 years now, the CIO 100 awards have honored the innovative use of technology to deliver genuine business value," said Maryfran Johnson, Editor in Chief of CIO magazine & events. "Our 2015 winners are an outstanding example of the transformative power of IT to drive everything from revenue growth to competitive advantage."
Executives from the winning companies will be recognized at The CIO 100 Symposium & Awards Ceremony to be held Tuesday, August 11, at The Broadmoor in Colorado Springs, CO.
Recipients of this year's CIO 100 Award were selected through a three-step process. First, companies filled out an online application detailing their innovative IT and business initiatives. Next, a team of external judges, many of them former CIOs, reviewed the applications in depth, looking for leading-edge IT practices and measurable results. Finally, CIO editors reviewed the judges' recommendations and selected the final 100.
"This is a tremendous honor for our IT team and Global CIO Adam Stanley," said Tod Lickerman, DTZ Global CEO. "They continue to push the boundaries of innovation for our firm and our industry. Within our company, they play a leading role in improving not only our technological performance but also our capability to deliver world-class service to our clients anywhere in the world."
Added Mr. Stanley, "At DTZ, our goal is to be the best commercial real estate services firm in the world, and integrating leading-edge technology into our service-delivery platform is an essential component. It's an honor for all of our IT teams around the world to be recognized as part of the CIO 100."
