Posted last May 03, 2016

The boldest and the brightest stars of San Miguel Properties, Inc.  came out to shine at the 2016 SMPI Star Awards last April 8. 


The annual recognition night gathered SMPI’s employees, sellers, and  executives for one night of partying at the Makati Diamond Residences, one of  the many projects of San Miguel Properties. Its luxurious setting was the  perfect backdrop for the evening’s theme, Betting It All in 2016.  


Amidst bright lights and festive decorations, the men and women of SMPI  were transported to Las Vegas, the Entertainment Capital of the World, where the  production numbers certainly did not disappoint.

The evening opened with a Broadway-inspired performance by SMPI  sellers and employees. Taking the entertainment to the next level was the 2016  SMPI Interdepartmental Competition. Four groups – the Sales, Marketing and  Leasing Departments; the Legal and Asset Management Services; Office of the  General Manager and Business Development Unit; and the Finance Department and  Accounts Management Group – participated in a dance showdown against each other.  In the end, it was the Legal and Asset Management Services group that took home  the P15,000 prize and the title of SMPI Interdepartmental Competition Champion.


Not to be outdone, SMPI’s own boyband, the Kanto Boys, composed of  Atty. Bien Alde of Legal and Asset Management Services, Technical Team Head Arch.  Abet Ventura, and Accounts Management Group Head Jenzell Libunao, performed to  shrieks and screams as they danced to and sang songs from boybands across the  decades, including the Backstreet Boys, Taiwanese pop sensation F4, and the  country’s very own Rocksteddy and VST and Company. 


But more than the entertainment, the 2016 Star Awards also brought  in glitz and glamor as the best of SMPI’s sellers and employees were recognized  for their exemplary work all throughout 2015. Sales Reservation and Sales  Booking Champions, as well as SMPI’s Service Awardees, basked in the limelight  as they received their awards from SMPI Mancom members Karen Ramos, Cecile Ang,  Atty. Karen Cas-Caballa, Ma. Alma Geronimo and Jenzell Libunao.
