Chicago (April 19, 2004) -- Former Clifton Gunderson chief technology officer Matthew Camden won't be starting his own technology business after all -- he accepted a post at Centerprise Advisors Inc. as the firm's first chief information officer, Centerprise confirmed.

In his new role, Camden will be responsible for transforming Centerprise's existing technology infrastructure to one that will support a high-performance organization, while enabling the firm to use technology infrastructure and technology consulting as a competitive advantage. Camden joined Centerprise on April 15.

Camden, who is credited with launching Clifton Gunderson’s technology consulting practice eight years ago, announced in March that he was leaving the firm to start his own technology business.

This isn't the first time Camden accepted a position at Centerprise. He previously announced his resignation as director of technology at CG in the fall of 2000 to join Centerprise as president and CTO of Centerprise Technology Solutions. However, he stayed at Clifton Gunderson when he was made CTO there.

Last year, Clifton placed its consulting and reselling operations under Camden in the newly created Clifton Gunderson Technology Solutions, which had $12 million in revenue for calendar 2003 and employed 125 at the time.

At Centerprise, Camden will initially be based in Chicago and will report directly to the firm’s chief executive officer, Jim McGuire.
