SGV welcomes the Ayala Group of Companies

SGV’s leadership, led by Chairman and Managing Partner Vic Noel, Deputy Managing Partner Itos Cruz, MC1 Leader Jessie Cabaluna and joined by Founder Wash SyCip, welcomed the officers and executives of the Ayala Group of Companies to a reception on January 9, 2012 at the SGV Museum. Highlight of the reception was the formal turnover of the Fernando Zobel painting “Las Soledades de Lope de Vega” from the SGV Foundation to the Ayala Foundation. It will become part of the Ayala Museum’s permanent art collection.

The gift symbolizes the enduring friendship between SGV and the Ayala Group of Companies. The event’s guest of honor, Ayala Corporation Chairman and CEO Jaime Augusto Zobel de Ayala expressed his gratitude as he was invited to share a few words. For Wash, the painting was more than just a piece of art. “The decision to buy the painting was one of the best decisions I’ve made,” he shared. “I’m very happy it has found a home close to our hearts at the Ayala Museum.”
