RESEARCH TRIANGLE PARK, N.C., July 14 /PRNewswire/ -- Quintiles Transnational Corp. has been named to Computerworld magazine's 2008 list of the "100 Best Places to Work in IT." Each year, the magazine publishes the results of its Best Places to Work in IT survey recognizing the top 100 companies in the United States that offer their IT staff a challenging and satisfying work environment.

Quintiles enters the Computerworld 100 Best Places list at number 37, the first time the company has made the annual ranking. Quintiles is the only major contract research organization (CRO) in the 2008 report and is one of only three North Carolina-based companies on this year's list.

"Needless to say, we are very gratified by this honor," says Quintiles Executive Vice President and Chief Information Officer Bill Deam. "It is concrete evidence that our efforts to make Quintiles an attractive destination for the best IT professionals in the business are paying off.

"I believe the best and brightest in the IT field are attracted to the fact that we are willing to embrace new technologies and try new approaches in order to meet the growing demand for our services," Deam concludes.
