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 Marriott 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 translated into unprecedented milestones in the 32-year history of Manila’s oldest light rail system.
The management team took initiatives to improve safety and cleanliness of the stations, increase the number of trains and trips as well as extend operating hours. These subsequently resulted in shorter passenger waiting time, bigger ridership, significantly higher customer satisfaction, and the company’s two ISO certifications for quality management and environmental management.
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.
LRMC is a joint venture company of Metro Pacific Investments Corporation’s Metro Pacific Light Rail Corporation (MPLRC), Ayala Corporation’s AC Infrastructure Holdings Corporation (AC Infra), and the Philippine Investment Alliance for Infrastructure’s Macquarie Infrastructure Holdings (Philippines) PT
