Wyndham Worldwide Named to Fortune Magazine's Most Admired Companies List

Parsippany, N.J. – Wyndham Worldwide (NYSE:WYN) has again been listed as one of FORTUNE Magazine’s Most Admired Companies for 2009.

Wyndham Worldwide ranked second on the Most Admired list in the hotels, casinos and resorts category, and joins 15 other New Jersey-based companies who were also named Most Admired in other categories, including Johnson & Johnson, Prudential Financial, Merck and Honeywell International. “Wyndham Worldwide is honored to join such world renowned and global leaders on the Most Admired list,” said Stephen P. Holmes, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. “As a company, we look forward to celebrating many more of these accomplishments as we continue to drive success through exceptional customer service and strong operational and financial performance.”

To produce the listings, 15,000 top executives, directors and analysts were asked to rate all FORTUNE 1,000 companies in their own industry on eight criteria. A company’s score must rank in the top half of its industry survey to appear in the listing and only the best are listed as a Most Admired Company. The full list of companies will appear in this week’s edition of FORTUNE.
