SAN FRANCISCO--(Business Wire)--
Dean Chin, Senior Vice President, Corporate Controller and Chief Accounting
Officer at ABM Industries, has been selected by the ranking committee of
ExecRank as a "Top Chief Accounting Officer" for 2012. Mr. Chin was listed among
the top 15 CAOs in the United States in ExecRank`s final rankings. The rankings
are the result of two years of research and feedback from evaluation committees
and top Chief Accounting Officers that yielded an algorithm for how to rank CAOs
based on their performance in 24 key areas. 

According to Adam Navrozally, Analyst for the rankings division of ExecRank,
"Mr. Chin has a strong record of success in numerous financial roles, most
notably at ABM Industries. His financial insights and background in audits and
regulations have made him a strong asset to ABM Industries and their accounting
procedures and controls. He is highly regarded in the facility services
industry, and amongst other Chief Accounting Officers." 

Mr. Chin commented, "I am honored to be included by ExecRank alongside a
distinguished group of leaders in my field. This recognition is a testament to
the dedication and expertise of the senior management team and my many
exceptional finance colleagues at ABM." 

There are over 30,000 Chief Accounting Officers and Controllers in the United
States. Only the very best are awarded the distinction of being a part of
ExecRank`s "Top Chief Accounting Rankings" for 2012. The number one area of
focus for Top CAOs in 2012 has been their role in maintaining financial controls
and adherence to increasingly difficult reporting compliance. ExecRank also
weighed heavily the recommendations provided by the CFOs and CEOs of the
finalists, as the accounting process is crucial to analyzing the company`s past
and future performance. In addition, we saw a significant uptick in the number
of CAOs that served on boards of directors and displayed a skill set that is
applicable to multiple industries. The CAOs that made this list represent the
best of the best in their field.
