Ernst & Young LLP (EY US) today announced that Raj Vattikuti, Executive Chairman of Altimetrik, was named an Entrepreneur Of The Year® 2020 National Award winner following selection as a Michigan and Northwest Ohio regional award winner in October. The Entrepreneur Of The Year Awards program is one of the preeminent competitive awards for entrepreneurs and leaders of high-growth companies. Vattikuti was one of 10 national winners announced Thursday, November 19, during a virtual awards celebration. The awards were the culmination of the Strategic Growth Forum®, one of the nation’s most prestigious gatherings of high-growth, market-leading companies. Vattikuti was selected by an independent panel of judges from a pool of more than 200 regional award winners.
“There’s so much potential right now to create new business models and seize new opportunities by enabling companies to simplify operations, promote experimentation, and improve collaboration,” Vattikuti says. “The secret to success is engaging the people around you, serving the needs of your clients, and empowering people to reach their goals. I share this award with the people who have supported and helped achieve what we set out to accomplish. Like other entrepreneurs, I’m constantly thinking about how we can change the world for the better through technology and philanthropy.”
Since 1986, EY US has honored entrepreneurs whose ingenuity, spirit of innovation and tenacity have driven their companies’ success, transformed their industries and made a positive impact on their communities. Vattikuti will go on to become a lifetime member of the esteemed multi-industry community of award winners, with exclusive, ongoing access to the experience, insight and wisdom of fellow alumni and other ecosystem members in over 60 countries — all supported by vast EY resources.
