Karen Lobendahn is the first woman to be chief execu­tive officer for Fiji Televi­sion Limited culminating a distin­guished career in a demanding industry long dominated by men.

And on Friday night that achieve­ment, dedication and success was recognised at the Women in Busi­ness Awards.

She was announced the Executive Woman of the Year – private sector at the Grand Pacific Hotel among established and aspiring women in business, guests and their families.

“Being a CEO has been a great challenge.

“This award is dedicated to my two children and to my supportive and hardworking staff of Fiji Tel­evision,” Ms Lobendahn said.

“I’ve been in the industry for 20 years and I was very delighted to be appointed as the first female chief executive officer for Fiji Television.

“Fiji Television has a young and vibrant team and I am really happy and very privileged to be given this award and thank you Fiji Televi­sion for recognising the work that I do,” she said.

Ms Lobendahn is married to Fer­nando Lobendahn, a former long-time member of the Fiji TV team.
