New Delhi: Audit and consultancy firm Ernst & Young has named B. Ramalinga Raju, chairman and founder of Satyam Computer Services Ltd, as the “Ernst & Young Entrepreneur of the Year 2007". Nine other entrepreneurs have been chosen for awards across various categories.

“The winners are outstanding individuals who have not only built best-in-class businesses, which are making their mark on the global platform, but have also taken innovative steps to positively impact the society and wider community," Rajiv Memani, country managing partner of Ernst & Young, said in a statement.
