SM Supermalls brings this same celebration to its shoppers with a series of memorable Christmas celebrations, all while implementing strict #SafeMalling protocols.

Trailblazing and global award-winning integrated communications agency COMCO Southeast Asia continues to celebrate its 5th anniversary by announcing the elevation of its pioneer and agency-honed managers to partners.
COMCO Southeast Asia’s Camp COMCO Mentorship program alumni, first hires (since the founding of the company) and homegrown talents AC Recio and Harvey Llamosa have been promoted from Associate Managers to Managers for their exemplary work in their respective accounts and fields of expertise as well demonstration of managerial qualities even at the early stages of their career. In addition, COMCO Southeast Asia, true to its thrust of Igniting Talent and vision to champion inclusive growth among its people, welcomed Mr. Recio and Mr. Llamosa as its newest partners for their commendable loyalty, excellence in their craft, sense of mission and leadership potential.
The announcement happened during COMCO Southeast Asia’s Blazing Sapphire 5th anniversary celebration alongside the launch of COMCO Middle East & Africa and the Agency’s 10-year growth masterplan including COMCO AOX League of Enterprises, the umbrella organization for the company’s existing and upcoming ventures, initiatives and advocacies.

Mr. Recio is also in charge of the Agency’s CODY STUDIO, the corporate identity and branding program for the company’s various initiatives.
“Being one of the first hires of a relatively new agency back then, I was aware of both the opportunity and uncertainty, but as someone who has worked with Coach (Ferds Bondoy) before, I knew what kind of environment he and the rest of the team planned on cultivating and knew the promise that it had. As someone who values people and relationships, it was a joy to see young talent grow and learn in an environment that cared for them, and as the years have passed, I’ve come to realize my own growth as well. I’m grateful to COMCO for trusting me and for giving me the chance to prove myself. I’m grateful to my mentors in COMCO who willingly pass on their knowledge every day, and to the rest of the team for their support. It’s hard not to be passionate when you’re surrounded by people who love what they do. As a new manager and partner, I’m thankful for Our COMCO Squadron, for five years of meaningful storytelling, and for the many more years ahead,” shared AC Recio.
