Fortune Names EMC The Only Technology Company Among Worl' 10 Most Admired Companies for Product and Service Quality

EMC Named “Industry Champion” in its Sector for Second Year in a Row

HOPKINTON, Mass., March 5, 2009 - 

EMC Corporation (NYSE:EMC), the world leader in information infrastructure solutions, is the only technology company among the World’s 10 Most Admired Companies for Product and Service Quality, according to FORTUNE magazine’s prestigious annual ranking of the “World’s Most Admired Companies.” The Product and Service Quality rankings are derived from a survey of executives, directors and financial analysts across all industries.

FORTUNE also named EMC “Industry Champion” as the #1 Most Admired Company overall in its industry sector for the second consecutive year. EMC was ranked #1 in all nine individual categories used by the magazine to rank the Most Admired Companies in each industry, including Innovation, People Management, Use of Corporate Assets, Social Responsibility, Quality of Management, Financial Soundness, Long-Term Investment, Quality of Products and Services and Global Competitiveness.

“Product and service quality tops the list of our customers’ most critical requirements,” said Frank Hauck, EMC Executive Vice President of Global Marketing and Customer Quality. “It is no coincidence that product and service quality is central to the way we measure and run EMC’s business, and that this broad cross-section of global executives would rank EMC as the only technology company on such a prestigious list makes us incredibly proud. We are deeply honored to be recognized by FORTUNE, our peers and thousands of executives and analysts among the top echelon of global companies. I want to thank EMC’s employees worldwide for their continued commitment to providing our customers with the best total customer experience.”

FORTUNE’s Most Admired Companies list is widely considered the definitive measure of corporate performance and reputation. This year, the magazine changed its survey format, combining the world’s and America’s Most Admired surveys into one global survey. To identify the Most Admired Companies, FORTUNE and its partner the Hay Group, survey top executives and boards of directors from the FORTUNE 1000 and Global 500 companies, and financial analysts who rate companies on nine attributes that include innovation, people management, social responsibility, quality of products and services, and global competitiveness.

The Most Admired survey results are featured in the March 16 issue of FORTUNE, and are accessible online at:
