In memoriam: ERR (1920-2011)

It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of former partner Eugenio Reyes (ERR), 91, on May 18, 2011. Gene, as he was known to many, lived as one of the distinguished personages of the Philippine accounting profession. He joined SGV in 1958 as partner, after a stint with the British accounting firm Fleming and Williamson. He impressed the highest level of professional ethics and quality standards in the audit practice, earning him the sobriquet “conscience of the firm.”

He was chairman and member of the Board of Accountancy for many years. He became President of the Philippine Institute of Certified Public Accountants in 1975-1976. During his term, he organized the ASEAN Federation of Accountants. For his achievements in the accounting profession, Gene was elevated to the Accountancy Hall of Fame in 1985.

Let us offer our prayers for the eternal repose of Eugene Reyes.
