Dee Haslam, CEO of RIVR Media and co-owner of the Cleveland Browns, spoke to a sold-out crowd at the Knoxville Chamber’s Women on the Rise event at Cherokee Country Club on Nov. 15.

Moderator Robin Wilhoit, WBIR-Channel 10, asked Haslam a series of questions about her background, work/life balance and how she thrives in male-dominated industries.

The popular event series, presented by SunTrust, offers bi-annual programs tailored to professional women.
