Former journalist and CEO
Swedish Television

Profile

Eva Hamilton, a former journalist and foreign correspondent, was the CEO of Sveriges Television (SVT), Sweden's public service broadcaster, for eight years, 2006-2014.


Eva transformed SVT from a traditional broadcaster to Sweden’s leading digital media provider. A radical makeover of the organization in 2008, staff-reductions, and a digitalization of production led to a healthy economical situation for SVT. This ensured SVT’s strong national position with popular linear and online programming. SVT is the leading national broadcaster today with a total market share of 35%.


Eva was appointed Sweden's "Leader of the Year" in 2009. In 2013 she received the "Change Management Award", another prestigious prize presented by KTH, the Royal Institute of Technology, and the Swedish Learning Association. Since Oct 2015 she holds the position of Honorary Doctor at Mittuniversitetet.


Currently Eva is a senior advisor and gives lectures. She also holds board seats at a variety of Swedish companies.
