Caterina De Nave

Producer

Caterina De Nave, who passed away on 17 August 2014, helped break the glass ceiling for women working in local television. As a network executive at both TVNZ and TV3, she often commissioned new writing and directing talent, and was a key player in the development of Shortland Street, Outrageous Fortune and Montana Sunday Theatre. In 2009 De Nave crossed the Tasman to join Australian broadcaster SBS.

Caterina De Nave had a huge heart and a huge intellect. She lived and breathed TV, was keen to take risks and fully embraced the new media landscape ... Cat was generous, passionate, warm, compassionate, stubborn and spirited — and had a wicked sense of humour. She believed the best in people and in making the world a better place. And thanks to Cat it is. TV3 executives Mark Caulton, Sue Woodfield and John McDonald, 19 August 2014
