New York: Forbes magazine has named Reliance Industries (RIL) Chairman Mukesh Ambani as the topmost among its 'Global Game Changers' who are transforming their industries and changing the lives of billions around the world.
Ambani features at the top of the Forbes' second annual Global Game Changers' list of 25 'intrepid business leaders unsatisfied with the status quo' who are 'transforming their industries and changing the lives of billions of people around the globe.' The magazine referred to the Reliance Jio mobile network's efforts to spread internet penetration in India.
'Oil and gas tycoon entered the country's telecom market with a bang, offering fast internet at dirt-cheap prices. Gained 100 million customers in six months and set off a wave of consolidation in the market,' Forbes said.
'While plenty of corporate functionaries make headlines for successful turnarounds or record profits, we sought to identify true movers and shakers who are determining the course of the future for more than just their own shareholders or employees,' it said.
