    Austin CEO named E&Y's Entrepreneur of the Year for region

    Ernst & Young announced on June 6 that Jeff Ziegler, CEO of Austin-based TechTurn, was the regional Entrepreneur of the Year winner. Ziegler's TechTurn collects, recycles, refurbishes, and remarkets technology products from large organizations to make a profit and minimize impact to the environment.

    TechTurn is a poster child for Austin's developing clean technology cluster. The Wall Street Journal reported that Austin even outpaces the vaunted Silicon Valley in this burgeoning area. So TechTurn's success seems particularly appropos.

    According to TechTurn, 300 of the Fortune 500 send their used technology to the company to be refurbed and resold around the world. As regional winner, Ziegler is now eligible to compete for the national E&Y Entrepreneur of the Year Award. .:.
