Asticom Group of Companies President and CEO Mharicar Castillo-Reyes was recently recognized in the Women in Finance Technology (WiFT) Leadership Awards 2022, emerging as one of the top three winners.

The awards celebrate strong women leaders in the Philippines who demonstrate exceptional leadership and outstanding management skills, successfully delivered technology-led change, and showed growth, impact, and innovation within their organizations.

“Asticom’s greatest asset is its people. The diversity among our employees is what drives Asticom’s many achievements. And, recognitions such as the WiFT Leadership Awards affirms our purpose. We are honored that our work in Asticom has been recognized,” said Reyes.

Under her leadership, Asticom hit the ₱2-billion revenue mark in just six years of operations, becoming one of the major contributors to the Globe Group’s spike in non-telco revenues this year.

The shared services company has also grown significantly in the last two years. It now manages a diverse business portfolio with the following subsidiaries: Asti Business Services Inc. (ABSI), HR and digital solutions provider HCX Technology Partners Inc., and local engineering firm Fiber Infrastructure and Network Services Inc. (FINSI).

“As a woman and a leader, you have the chance to inspire other women to take that first step towards something meaningful. And I’m grateful for this opportunity to show that with courage and purpose, we can make an impact and achieve our goals,” Reyes added.

As the top three winners had the opportunity to donate their prize money to their chosen charity, Reyes gave her winnings to The Hapag Movement, the Globe Group’s program that aims to address involuntary hunger through technology.
