Mukesh Ambani

Mukesh Ambani of Reliance Industries Ltd., or RIL, was the industry leader most written about in the May 16 to June 15 period. RIL's 37th annual general meeting, or AGM, at which Ambani highlighted the company's expansion plans, was widely covered, including in sections of the international press. Ambani's run to the top was pegged on controversies, too - notably the leaked draft report of the Comptroller and Auditor General, which said "the ministry and Director General of Hydrocarbons allowed RIL to violate terms of the contract with the government for its showcase Andhra offshore gas fields". N.R. Narayana Murthy of Infosys was the favourably reported CEO as his tenure drew to an end. The Infosys AGM was "virtually a farewell party to Murthy", as one newspaper put it.
