Charo Santos-Concio wins Gold Stevie Award
ABS-CBN president and CEO Charo Santos-Concio was awarded the Gold Stevie Award in the Female Executive of the Year in Asia, Australia, or New Zealand category at the prestigious Stevie Awards for Women in Business held in New York on Nov. 14.
The Stevie Awards for Women in Business are the world’s top honors for female entrepreneurs, executives, employees and the organizations they run. All individuals and organizations worldwide are eligible to submit nominations—public and private, for-profit and non-profit, large and small. The 2014 awards received entries from 22 nations and territories.
Nicknamed the Stevies for the Greek word “crowned,” the awards were presented to winners during a dinner event attended by more than 400 people at the Marriott Marquis Hotel in New York City.
Santos-Concio was cited by the award-giving body for the achievements of ABS-CBN last year under her leadership, such as its continued reign in TV ratings, increase in company revenues, Star Cinema movies’ box-office sales, ABS-CBN’s high credit rating for its P10 billion bond offering, groundbreaking business ventures such as ABS-CBNmobile, theme park Kidzania Manila, and TV home shopping channel O Shopping, and public service initiatives for the victims of the Bohol quake, Zamboanga siege, and typhoon “Yolanda,” and the success of its 60th anniversary celebration.
