After 22 years of service with Fiji Television Limited, Tarun Patel bid the television company farewell on Friday.
He was one of the local pioneers of Fiji Television Limited but he lost his position as chief executive after Fijian Holdings became a major shareholder.
Mr Patel had been a part of Fiji TV since 1991 and was appointed chief strategy officer the past year.
He held various positions within the company and was the former Group chief executive from January 2009 to July 2013.
Mr Patel said it had been an enriching experience being part of the dynamic company in the TV broadcast environment.
“I feel blessed being part of Fiji TV and leave with many fond memories and achievements,” he said.
“I thank the shareholders, boards both past and present, staff and management and our loyal viewers and stakeholders for allowing me to be a part of this great company.”
Fiji TV chief executive, Tevita Gonelevu, said: “It is a sad day for Fiji TV as we bid farewell to a founder who had become synomous with television broadcast not only in Fiji the Pacific region.
Fiji TV chairman, Padam Lala, sent the similar sentiment as Mr Gonelevu.
“We are indebted to Tarun for the various challenges brought about with Fiji TV up till today,” he said.
“The Fiji TV family wishes him well in his future endeavours.”
