Aside from providing a brief respite from stress, the event aims to promote synergy among the conglomerate leaders by reinforcing their bond through socializing and friendly competition. The tourney was organized by CIBI Information, Inc. headed by President and CEO Mr. Marlo R. Cruz.
The participants were grouped into three flights or divisions. Flight 1 was composed of Rene Buenaventura, Vice Chairman of the Equicom Group; Renato Peronilla, President of Philippine Rating Services Corporation; and Toto Revilla. Flight 2 was joined by Tong Puno; Racquel Cagurangan; and Jim de Castro, Vice President for Sales of CIBI Information, Inc. Meanwhile, Flight 3 included Alan Matutina, President of Equitable Savings Bank; Alvin Alquinto, Head of Business Development of CIBI Information, Inc. and Marlo Cruz, President and CEO of CIBI.
Also present during the competition were Sean Argos, Chief Operating Officer of Maxicare Healthcare Corporation, Philippines and Frederic Peignon, President and CEO of Metro Dental Clinic.
The game committee adopted a System 36 handicap scheme, a simplified method of tallying scores for games that have to be decided on the same day.
Having the most efficient swing, Mr. Buenaventura came out on top and was named the ultimate champion with the lowest net score in the tournament. Mr. Puno placed 1st runner up followed by Allan Matutina for 2nd runner up. Mr. Alquinto, on the other hand, received a special award for garnering the highest gross score. It was a nice try for a newbie.
All four winners received a golf trophy as their prize.
With the success of the first intercompany mini golf tournament, the organizers are bound to make it an annual affair, giving the Equicom Group executives and its other partners one more thing to look forward to during the holiday season.
Managed by some of the most experienced and trusted names in the HMO, banking and finance, and IT industries, the Equicom Group has produced known leaders such as Maxicare Healthcare Corporation, My Health and Metro Dental Clinics, Equicom Savings Bank, ALGO Leasing & Finance, Equitable Computer Services, as well as the CIBI Information, Inc., the Philippines’ first credit bureau.
