Ambit CIO Named to Computerworld Premier 100 IT Leader

John Burke receives high honors for top achievements in the Information Technology field

(DALLAS) – Ambit Energy, a leading national retail energy provider based in Dallas, has announced its Chief Information Officer John Burke’s recent recognition as a Computerworld 2010 Premier 100 IT Leaders honoree.

“To be counted among this group of exceptional leaders by such a prestigious industry publication is an honor,” said Burke. “When we launched Ambit Energy, we decided to build all of our mission‐critical systems from scratch. Obviously, that took much more than the efforts of one, or even a few. Because of a highly dedicated IT team, which I have the privilege to lead, we’ve been recognized as an industry innovator in just a few short years.”

This year’s Premier 100 spotlights award leaders from both the technology and business sides of companies for their exceptional technology leadership, innovative ideas to business challenges and effectively managed IT strategies.

“The Premier 100 awards program shines a spotlight on the best of IT leadership and innovation,” said Scot Finnie, editor in chief of Computerworld. “Despite a tough economy, these senior IT leaders are seizing this rare moment to steer measured growth, embark on innovative pilots and build loyalty in their most valued workers. We’re pleased to honor the achievements of these 100 men and women who epitomize calm and steady IT leadership.”

The Premier 100 awards ceremony will be one of the highlights of Computerworld’s annual Premier 100 IT Leaders Conference, being held March 7‐9, 2010, at the JW Marriott Desert Ridge Resort in Phoenix, Arizona. The Conference, to be attended by more than 375 influential senior IT executives, will showcase honorees and other IT innovators as they discuss how to create competitive IT organizations.
