Congratulations to the three Singaporean winners of this year’s Ernst & Young Entrepreneur of the Year awards: John Tan, Chief Executive of ACR Capital Holdings, Olivia Lum, Group CEO of Hyflux and finally Dr Ng Chin Siau, CEO of Q&M Dental Group.

EOY Awards are presented to 900 of the most innovative and successful entrepreneurs in 140 cities in over 50 countries, who will represent their regions as finalists at the 2011 World Entrepreneur of the Year award in Monte Carlo. The awards, now 24 years old, are now in their 9th year in Singapore where they’ve become a significant event on the local business calendar.

E&Y praised the diverse range of businesses represented in the nominations and the environment in Singapore that allowed them to flourish. The company said they chose the winners “based on their merits in fulfilling six criteria; entrepreneurial spirit, innovation, personal integrity and influence, financial performance, strategic direction and global impact.”
