Fiji Times appoints first woman Production Manager

Tuesday, September 05, 2017

Update: 6:56PM A DAY after The Fiji Times newspaper company celebrated its 148th year anniversary, it also marked one of the company's many achievements of a first in the appointment of its first female Productions Manager.

The management today made an official announcement on the appointment of Penina Magnus, making her the first woman to obtain this most important position within the company.

Fiji Times general manager and publisher Hank Arts said being in charge of a massive print operation operating seven days a week, with multiple publications and deadlines, was not an easy task.  

However, he said Mrs Magnus had shown that nothing was impossible and her background was ideally suited to handle the complicated tasks to bring the paper from graphics to plate to press.

Mrs Magnus, 43, attended the Fiji National University and graduated with a Trade Certificate in Printing, specialising in Composing and Designing, and received the prize for Best Composing and Design in Graphic and Desktop Publishing.

"We are delighted with her appointment and wish her all the best for the future."
