Two Local Guys Win Big While Doing Good
Standing tall on a stage in Seattle among a field of over-achievers in mid-June were a couple of hometown guys, Rajeev (Raj) Singh and Chris Moore. Each had migrated from Vicksburg to Seattle as young upstarts in the field of technology in the 1990s. They weren’t captains of industry then, just guys with a dream to succeed in the highly competitive world of tech-based Seattle.
Twenty-five years later, here they were together at the apex of their separate careers, singled out as movers and shakers in the Northwest region. The event was sponsored by Ernst & Young, the accounting firm that initiated the Entrepreneur of the Year program throughout the United States and worldwide in 1986. They had been selected by an independent panel of judges and presented with their individual awards during a black-tie gala in Seattle.
