Cognizant has been named the “Company of the Year” for corporate excellence by Business Standard, one of India’s leading business dailies. The jury for the Business Standard Corporate Awards for the year 2011-12 consisted of KV Kamath (the former CEO of ICICI Bank and current Chairman of Infosys was the chairman of the jury), Kumar Mangalam Birla (Chairman of the Aditya Birla Group), YM Deosthalee (MD of L&T Finance and former CFO of L&T), Naushir Kaka (Head of McKinsey in India), Rajeev Memani (Head of E&Y in India), and others. The decision was quite unanimous. “The only name that came up [for the Company of the Year award] was the Nasdaq-listed Cognizant Technology Solutions, a company that has been adding more incremental business than India’s top three software exporters,” writes the paper. “Though Cognizant, headed by CEO Francisco D’Souza, is not listed in India and BS awards have traditionally considered only listed companies, the jury decided to make an exception.”
