GLOBAL Busi­ness Power Cor­po­ra­tion (GBP) Pres­i­dent Jaime T. Azurin was se­lected as one of the Out­stand­ing Lead­ers in Asia at the 2020 Asia Cor­po­rate Ex­cel­lence and Sus­tain­abil­ity (ACES) Awards, or­ga­nized by the MORS Group.

The Out­stand­ing Lead­ers in Asia Award is pre­sented to in­spir­ing lead­ers and sus­tain­abil­ity ad­vo­cates across var­i­ous in­dus­tries in the re­gion, who lead or­ga­ni­za­tions with high brand value and ex­hibit an ideal blend of busi­ness acu­men, in­no­va­tion, mar­ket adapt­abil­ity, and as­tute­ness. Out of the 37 nom­i­na­tions through­out Asia, only ten were cho­sen as win­ners un­der the said cat­e­gory.

Azurin has been with GBP since it started with only 15 em­ploy­ees in 2003. Prior to be­com­ing pres­i­dent in 2017, he was the com­pany’s Chief Fi­nance Of­fi­cer and Ex­ec­u­tive Vice Pres­i­dent for Busi­ness De­vel­op­ment and Com­mer­cial Op­er­a­tions.

GBP is a lead­ing power pro­ducer in Visayas, with op­er­a­tions in Min­danao and Min­doro is­lands. Un­der Azurin’s lead­er­ship and with the help of its 954 em­ploy­ees, GBP’S to­tal gross ca­pac­ity in­creased six­fold – from 185.5 MW in 2003 to 1,091 MW as of to­day.

The MORS Group said one of the ways Azurin dif­fer­en­ti­ates him­self from his peers is his brand of strate­gic lead­er­ship which fo­cuses on new mar­kets and syn­er­gies, and cre­ation of op­por­tu­ni­ties and in­no­va­tive so­lu­tions out of chal­lenges. “An­other unique fac­tor that sets Azurin apart is his be­lief and com­mit­ment to prac­tic­ing sus­tain­able lead­er­ship,” it added.

“The Award in­spires us at GBP to forge on with our role in shap­ing the na­tion’s fu­ture and in al­low­ing peo­ple to ful­fill their dreams,” shared Azurin. “For me, the dis­tinc­tion only val­i­dates that GBP is on the right path of en­light­en­ing lives and em­pow­er­ing progress.”

This was af­firmed by MORS Group Chief Ex­ec­u­tive Of­fi­cer Shang­gari Balakrishn­an. “GBP’S suc­cess is founded on fi­nan­cial strength, strate­gic part­ner­ships, tech­ni­cal ex­per­tise and com­mit­ment to ser­vice ex­cel­lence. But more than that, its drive to be a provider of sus­tain­able en­ergy so­lu­tions, uti­liz­ing di­ver­si­fied sources and in­no­va­tive tech­nolo­gies, in the pur­suit of en­light­en­ing lives and em­pow­er­ing progress, makes the com­pany one to watch and laud,” he said.
