Join me for a Fireside Chat with Charlene Brophy, President and CEO of FONEMED, an international telemedicine company, offering a patient-centred platform that incorporates technology and disease-specific algorithms as well as telemedicine support and remote biometric monitoring to over 2300 client groups and 40 million individuals globally. Charlene has brought her hands-on knowledge of our healthcare system into developing countries and communities which otherwise would not have access to medical care. Today, FONEMED oversees operations for close to 1000 employees supporting their Canadian, US and international operations.
Charlene has been recognized by multiple organizations for her success in the business community. She was awarded Newfoundland and Labrador’s Organization of Women Entrepreneurs (NLOWE) Entrepreneurial Excellence Award in November 2020. She has been the recipient of four Business Excellence Awards from The St. John’s Board of Trade. She was awarded the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation Innovator of the Year by Atlantic Business Magazine in 2017 and recognized as one of the Top 50 CEOs in Atlantic Canada from 2017-2021. In May of 2021, Charlene was inducted into the Business Excellence Hall of Fame by Atlantic Business Magazine.
In addition to her business commitments, Charlene has a profound sense of community and believes in giving back to the province and the communities that have supported her over the years. She supports various local charities through her hands-on approach, and she is proud to continue to grow her business right here in Newfoundland.
