Property giant bags its first international award for 2020 by winning its third straight ‘Best Developer’ award at the
International Finance Awards
Megaworld won its first major international recognition for 2020 after being named as the “Best Real Estate Development Company in the Philippines” at the recently concluded 2019 International Finance Awards held in Waldorf Astoria Bangkok in Thailand.
Coming on the heels of the company’s 30th anniversary celebration, Megaworld was awarded as the “Best Real Estate Development Company in the Philippines” for the third consecutive year for its remarkable achievements and valuable contributions to the Philippine real estate industry. Having pioneered the concept of developing integrated urban townships in the Philippines, the company has grown its portfolio to 26 township developments located in key areas all over the country. It has also etched a mark in the industry as the leader in office developments, a trendsetter in lifestyle mall developments, and the biggest hotel operator in the country today.
Megaworld’s wholly owned subsidiary Suntrust Properties, Inc. was also feted as the “Most Innovative Residential Developer” for continuing to develop self-sustaining communities that combine well-thought-out designs, functionality, and the highest standards of quality and comfort for Filipino families.
“We are very grateful for these two recognitions given to us by the International Finance Magazine. These awards will continue to inspire us as we fulfil our commitment to become a catalyst of growth in areas where we are present. This also forms part of our vision to uplift lives, impact the society, and help shape the nation,” said Lourdes T. Gutierrez-Alfonso, chief operating officer, Megaworld.
Deanna Jean Claveria, executive vice president and chief operating officer of Suntrust Properties, Inc., accepted the recognitions during the gala ceremony.
Both Megaworld and Suntrust Properties underwent extensive scrutiny by a qualified research team from the International Finance Magazine before besting the rest of the competition and be named as the winners in their respective categories.
Organized by the International Finance Publications Ltd., a premium financial and business analysis magazine based in the United Kingdom, the International Finance Awards is conducted annually to celebrate exceptional industry talent, leadership skills, industry net worth, and the remarkable capability of select companies to excel on an international platform. The Real Estate Awards, in particular, recognizes property developers that stand out due to the quality of their products, service standards, and consistency of service, as well as those that provide a relentlessly engaging and valuable experience to their customers.
