The Philippine Star - - PEOPLE&EVENTS -

The Ate­neo de Manila Univer­sity, through its Fam­ily Busi­ness De­vel­op­ment Cen­ter (FBDC), and Union­bank of the Philip­pines (UBP), have part­nered to look for the best Filipino fam­ily busi­ness.

A mem­o­ran­dum of un­der­stand­ing was signed be­tween the Ate­neo (rep­re­sented by Maria Luz Vilches, vice pres­i­dent for the Loy­ola Schools and Luis Dum­lao, dean of the John Gokong­wei School of Man­age­ment) and UBP (rep­re­sented by Justo Or­tiz, chair­man and chief ex­ec­u­tive of­fi­cer and Eu­gene Acevedo, se­nior ex­ec­u­tive vice pres­i­dent, cen­ter head for re­tail and cor­po­rate bank­ing) at the Ate­neo’s Loy­ola Heights cam­pus last April 18.

Un­der the agree­ment, UBP will col­lab­o­rate with Ate­neo FBDC in im­ple­ment­ing a pro­gram that rec­og­nizes and awards fam­ily busi­nesses in the Philip­pines. The two will form a cri­te­ria com­mit­tee that will pro­vide the method­ol­ogy for se­lect­ing the can­di­dates, en­try clas­si­fi­ca­tion, win­ner se­lec­tion, and other con­cerns re­lated to the pro­gram.

Ini­ti­ated in 2008, the Ate­neo FBDC has given sem­i­nars to fam­ily busi­nesses, en­abling them to achieve their de­vel­op­ment goals while en­sur­ing healthy busi­ness suc­ces­sion. It strives to be the lead­ing re­sources for devel­op­ing and strength­en­ing busi­nesses in the ASEAN re­gion.
