ZAGREB, Dec 10, 2018 – Ericsson Nikola Tesla Management Board chair Gordana Kovačević was named the most powerful businesswoman in Croatia at the 8th international conference “Women in Business”, held in Zagreb last Thursday.

The country’s 300 most powerful business women were named at the conference, and the top ten include Energia Naturalis Management Board member Sabina Škrtić, Zagrebački Holding Management Board chair Ana Stojić Deban, European Association of Public Banks Board member Tamara Perko, and Lada Tedeschi Fiorio, deputy chair of the Atlantic Group Supervisory Board.

Euroherc Management Board chair Ivana Bratanić is placed sixth, followed by Philip Morris general director Anita Letica, Croatian Employers Association president Gordana Deranja, the director of Siemens for Croatia and Slovenia, Medeja Lončar, and Coca-Cola HBC Adria director Ruža Tomić Fontana.

Finnish Deputy Ambassador Virpi Turunen, whose country was a partner to the conference, said that Finland was one of the world’s least corrupt countries and noted that there was a clear connection between prominent representation of women in managerial positions and a low level of corruption.

Work on gender equality contributes to dealing with the problem of corruption and its effects on the democratic system, Turunen said.
