Mr Riyaz turned the Fiji Broadcasting Corporation (FBC) around towards profits since assumed the role as Chief Executive Officer in December 2017. He took the publicly-owned company which has been in bad financial position by examining the corporate operations and then formulating concise plans to improve all aspects of its operation to maximize profits.
FBC as the public provider of official government information to Fijians has an obligation to provide quality product. Under his able leadership, FBC enhanced the management skills and renovated the existing infrastructure facilities to ensure the corporation is growing in market share and generating profits for sustainability.
