The Territories Minister, Alex Somlyay, has congratulated four Canberra businesswomen on their success in today's ACT Telstra business awards.

Ms Annabelle Pegrum, who starts next Monday as the new Chief Executive of the National Capital Authority, was named ACT Telstra Business Woman of the Year, and also won the MobilNet Corporate and Government category award.

"I am delighted with Annabelle Pegrum's success. Her award shows that top performance in management in the public sector is also recognised, as much as it has been in private enterprise," Mr Somlyay said.

"I also congratulate the other top Canberra businesswomen, Ms Fiona Wright, of the Lobby Restaurant, who won the Westpac Business Owner Award; Ms Judy Burnett, of Maura Fay Workshops, who won the Auslndustry Private Sector Award, and Ms Elizabeth Whitelaw, of Deacon, Graham & James, who received the Ansett Private Sector Award.

"The vital role women play in business, commerce and public administration has often gone unheralded, and I am delighted that achievements by Canberra businesswomen have been recognised in this way," Mr Somlyay said.
