Top female executives from RTL Hungary
RTL Hungary CEO Gabriella Vidus and CDO Judit Grósz are once again named among the most influential female executives in the Hungarian media industry by Forbes.

"You don't need to understand football, you need to understand business", said Gabriella Vidus, CEO of RTL Hungary, in a Forbes interview last year after RTL Hungary acquired the broadcasting rights to the UEFA Champions League.

Since 2015, Forbes has been publishing a list of the most influential female executives in five different categories: business, international business, culture, media and public life. Gabriella Vidus has now been leading the media category for ten consecutive years. Judit Grósz, Chief Digital Officer, has been named 7th on the list for the second time.

Barbara Hámori, who was responsible for RTL Hungary’s newly launched quiz show The Jump as a producer, has also been included in the Forbes list, ranking 10th. Barbara is currently working on The Floor – Csak egy maradhat (The Floor – Only one can remain), which will premiere on RTL in Hungary later this year.

Gabriella Vidus says: "Thank you to the editors and judges of Forbes for choosing me as the most influential female leader in the media category for the 10th time. Congratulations to Judit Grósz, Barbara Hámori, and everyone else on the Forbes lists! It is an honour to be included in this ranking with them. At RTL Hungary, we work hard to continuously improve and maintain our dominant position in the market. This ranking is even more feedback for our company that we are on the right track".
