ABS-CBN president and chief executive officer Charo Santos-Concio received a Lifetime Achievement Award for cycle 2014 of the Lopez Achievement Awards (LAA).
Recognizing her exemplary and consistent practice of the Lopez Values in almost three decades of service to ABSCBN, Concio’s award inspires all her Lopez Group kapamilya to dedicate themselves to innovation, honesty and excellence.
The former production consultant became the first female president of ABS-CBN in 2008. Under her watch, the company aggressively strengthened corporate operating structures and put in place training programs designed to upgrade the skills and talents of the next generation of ABSCBN leaders.
Five years later, when she once again broke the glass ceiling to assume the position of ABS-CBN CEO, Concio set her sights on “sustaining the corporate growth and leadership momentum started by ABSCBN chairman Eugenio Lopez III and continuing to create world-class content that can be applied in various platforms.”
In her 28 years with ABSCBN, the proud daughter of Calapan City, Oriental Mindoro consistently topped the key indicators that guide the network in selecting its future leaders: sustained excellent performance; proven track record in his or her area of work; contribution to business growth and competitiveness; personal values that are aligned with corporate values; a clear understanding of the company’s overall business strategy; and great people and communication skills.
The Lifetime Achievement Award caps a string of awards for leadership and management excellence Concio has received in recent years, and was meant “not just for a job well done, more so for a life welllived.” (Story/Photos by: Carla P. Sison)
