Past and present SGV partners get together for Christmas

Dressed in their comfy jeans, active and alumni SGV partners gathered at the Isabela ballroom of the Makati Shangri-La Hotel last 14 December for the 2015 Partners’ Christmas Party.
In his welcome remarks, Chairman and Managing Partner Vic Noel (CPN) acknowledged the partners’ contributions to the Firm. “To our alumni partners, I will never get tired of thanking you for your stewardship. We are here because of your great work that contributed to SGV’s success… To our active partners, we recognize your total commitment to maintain the Firm’s leadership through your hard work. I am very honored to stand together with each of you as my co-leaders in SGV,” he said. CPN then presented a video on the recent developments in SGV and our direction for 2016, the Firm’s 70th anniversary. This was followed by a few words from SGV Founder Washington SyCip (WS), who remarked on SGV’s growth over the years.

The SGV Glee Club entertained the active and retired partners with their rendition of 10 English and Filipino Christmas songs, including Kumukutikutitap and Christmas is the Season. Renowned Filipino tenor and Phantom of the Opera international touring cast member Dondi Ong also performed opera and Broadway favorites.
