18 October 2017 – For leadership excellence in improving customer experience on Light Rail Transit Line 1 (LRT-1), rail operator Light Rail Manila Corporation (LRMC) was named 2017 Executive Leadership Team of the Year at the Asia CEO Awards last night.
In ceremonies held at the Manila Mariott Hotel, LRMC’s management team was awarded Executive Leadership Team of the Year while LRMC President and CEO Rogelio Singson was among the finalists named for Global Filipino Executive of the Year. Awards organizer Chalré Associates earlier disclosed that audit firm PricewaterhouseCoopers received over 320 entries for 15 categories.
The awards were conferred on LRMC for its achievement in improving efficiencies and introducing innovations that resulted in increased number of trains and trips, improved safety and cleanliness of the stations, and extended operating hours resulting in reduced passenger waiting time, increased ridership, significantly improved customer satisfaction, and the company’s achievement of two ISO certifications for quality management and environmental management — all unprecedented milestones in the 32-year history of Manila’s oldest light rail system.
Presented by PLDT Enterprise, the annual Asia CEO Awards is the largest business awards in the Philippines aimed at promoting the ASEAN region as a premier business destination in the world. Previous winners for Executive Leadership Team included Subic Bay Metropolitan Authority, Clark Development Corporation and SM Prime Holdings.
