Corporate Executive Board CEO to Ring NASDAQ Closing Bell on September 16th

Company Celebrates 25th Year in Business

ARLINGTON, Va.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Sept. 16, 2008--The Corporate Executive Board Company (NASDAQ: EXBD) today announced that Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Tom Monahan will ring the NASDAQ closing bell on Tuesday, September 16, 2008 at the NASDAQ MarketSite in New York City.

In presiding over the ceremony, Mr. Monahan will celebrate the Corporate Executive Board's 25 years in business as a leading provider of research, analysis, insights and resources that enable corporate executives and professionals to accelerate their decision making, excel in their roles and drive corporate performance.

"We're honored to participate in the NASDAQ closing bell ceremony and celebrate our 25th year of helping executives and professionals at the world's leading companies successfully navigate through business challenges and deliver superior outcomes," said Mr. Monahan. "Since our beginnings in 1983, we've amassed the most powerful peer-to-peer business network, and now provide nearly 120,000 executives and professionals at over 4,700 member companies with instant access to the essential, proven resources they need to make smart decisions about myriad business issues. Additionally, our unique business model and research economics allow us to deliver the highest quality resources to our members at just a fraction of the costs associated with traditional professional services companies."

The Corporate Executive Board offers more than 50 integrated membership programs built around key executive roles and recurring workflows in such critical functional areas as HR, finance, IT, sales and marketing and operations and procurement. Members have direct access to an integrated suite of knowledge resources and more than 300,000 tools including primary analytic insights, customized research briefs, decision-support tools, on-site consulting, executive education seminars and web-based content.

"Recent events in the financial services industry are a stark reminder that the challenge of successfully navigating through the current economic downturn is growing increasingly complex, and the risks of making mistakes are accordingly high," added Mr. Monahan. "Every one of our membership programs offers best-in-class thinking, as well as proven strategies and approaches on how to manage through these uncertain times, because at the end of the day, there is rarely a problem someone is facing that one of their peers around the world has not solved or made substantial progress against."

Mr. Monahan concluded, "Today's celebration recognizes the Corporate Executive Board's significant achievements over the past 25 years - all of which reflect the hard work and dedication of our employees around the world, the guiding strategic vision of our senior leadership team and Board of Directors, and the continued support of our valued shareholders."

A live webcast of the closing ceremony will begin at 3:50 PM E.T. and can be viewed via The MarketSite Webcam by launching this link:
