BDO Unibank’s top leaders—Teresita Sy-Coson, chairperson; Nestor V. Tan, president and chief executive officer; and Eduardo V. Francisco, president of BDO Capital and Investment Corporation and chairman of BDO Nomura, have been named Nation Builders by BizNewsAsia, the largest business and weekly news magazine in the Philippines.

BizNewsAsia awarded the title to outstanding entrepreneurs and government officials for their “excellence or exceptional achievements in strategic management and visioning, entrepreneurship, general management, and green entrepreneurship.”

Coson is recognized not only for her leadership in the country’s largest bank, but also in SM Investment Corporation (SMIC) and SM Prime Holdings where she is the vice chairperson and adviser to the board, respectively. BDO, SMIC, and SM Prime are noted as “undisputed profit-makers, market leaders, and disrupters.”

“We are humbled to be part of this illustrious list of movers and shakers in the Philippines. Thank you and congratulations BizNewsAsia for 17 years of journalistic excellence,” Coson said.

A total of 37 individuals were named Nation Builders, including Ramon S. Ang, vice chairman, president, and chief operating officer of San Miguel Corporation; John Gokongwei Jr., chairman emeritus of JG Summit, Inc.; and Jose Sio, chairman of SMIC. From the government sector, President Rodrigo Duterte and former presidents Fidel V. Ramos, Joseph Ejercito Estrada, and Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo were honored.

BizNewsAsia, a weekly publication, has a pass-on circulation of 350,000 readers. It distributed a special anniversary issue featuring the success stories of its awardees. (PR)
