CIO Magazine, CIO Executive Council Honor Rising Stars of IT

CKE Restaurants, Inc. (NYSE: CKR) announced today that Tom Lindblom, the Company's vice president and chief technology officer, has been named a 2006 "One to Watch" by IDG's CIO Magazine and the CIO Executive Council. This prestigious honor is bestowed upon 20 rising stars in information technology who bring leadership, innovation and value to their organization, and are primed to become future chief technology officers. Lindblom accepted his award during a ceremony held last night in Cambridge, Mass.

"Tom is an outstanding asset to CKE Restaurants, Inc. and carries nearly 30 years of experience," said CKE chief information officer Jeffrey P.

Chasney. "I feel honored to have such a talented colleague on the bridge with me and I am thrilled at his recognition. It is well deserved." All "Ones to Watch" honorees must be nominated or endorsed by a CIO.

Nominations were submitted in the fall of 2005 and reviewed by a judging panel of 15 leading CIOs. "While the 'Ones to Watch' awards are bestowed on individuals, the honor also belongs to the nominating CIOs and their organizations for their focus on leadership development and attention to cultivating the next generation of IT leaders," says Abbie Lundberg, CIO editor in chief.

Upon accepting the award, Lindblom said, "I am honored at the recognition given by CIO Magazine and the CIO Executive Council and thank them sincerely.

Thank you, also, to CKE Restaurants, Inc. for the opportunity to accomplish so much in my field." As of the fiscal year ended Jan. 30, 2006, CKE Restaurants, Inc., through its subsidiaries, had a total of 3,160 franchised or company-owned restaurants in 43 states and in 13 countries, including 1,049 Carl's Jr.(R) restaurants, 1,993 Hardee's(R) restaurants and 102 La Salsa Fresh Mexican Grill(R) restaurants.
