Vizio Gets Ernst & Young Award
Vizio this week received a regional Entrepreneur of the Year award from the accounting firm Ernst & Young, the company said. Vizio, based in Irvine, Calif., won the award for the Orange County/Desert Cities region.
“This is a great honor for VIZIO to not only win this award but to be recognized by other business leaders in Orange County,” the company’s CEO and founder, William Wang, said in a statement. Founded only five years ago, Vizio is now at or near the top of most surveys of LCD TV market share.
Winning the award makes Vizio eligible for the national Ernst & Young Entrepreneur of the Year, which will be handed out in November.
