The Philippines’ first fully integrated health app, Metro Pacific Investments Corporation’s (MPIC) mWell, enters the new year with global honors for its Chairman Manny V. Pangilinan and CEO Chaye A. Cabal-Revilla.
MPIC Chairman and CEO Manny V. Pangilinan, was named Asia’s Best CEO (Investor Relations) in the 12th Asian Excellence Awards 2022 Corporate Governance Asia.
Mr. Pangilinan, who was also named as a 2022 BizNews Asia Management Excellence Awardee, said, “MPIC was established with a goal of achieving synthesis between global governance standards and Asian values and practices. This recognition is a welcome affirmation of our work. We regard this award as a responsibility to set a higher standard for companies in the Philippines, as well as in Asia. This inspires us to perform better, so that we may live up to the distinction bestowed on us.”
Ms. Cabal-Revilla, MPIC Chief Finance, Risk and Sustainability Officer and mWell CEO, was cited as Asia’s Best CFO (Investor Relations) in the 12th Asian Excellence Awards 2022 Corporate Governance Asia and received the Management Excellence in Finance Award from BizNews Asia.
She has also been named as the Best Sustainability Officer in The Asset ESG Corporate Awards 2022, which recognizes the top teams in investor relations and sustainability. Dubbed by peers as the “Queen of Sustainability” in the Philippines, she led the company’s business transformation by modernizing its enterprise resource planning systems and steered the company to achieve global firsts, which included the launch of mWell app. She firmly believes that digital transformation is necessary for sustainability as it optimizes costs, accelerates growth, and places the company a step ahead in preparing for a more digital future.
Also hailed as the 2022 Sustainability Leader of Campaign’s Women Leading Change Awards Asia-Pacific, Cabal-Revilla has transformed the business beyond being purely profit-driven, futureproofing its operations and its advocacies for generations to come.
Cognizant of the need for better access to healthcare, she led the launch of the country’s first fully integrated health and wellness app – mWell PH – to support the Filipino’s holistic well-being by providing accessible professional consultations, wellness programs, products, and medicine delivery services. mWell seeks to democratize healthcare by making it accessible to more Filipinos anytime, anywhere. She also inspired the creation of the National mWellness Day, the first online digital medical mission where Filipinos can avail of free consultations from mWell’s volunteer doctors. She also pioneered the mWell OnTheGo, a portable digital clinic in a backpack, to bring healthcare access closer to remote communities, especially the Indigenous Peoples. The bag contains a tablet with a pre-installed mWell app, a solar panel and battery, and an mWellness gift box that has a thermometer, oximeter, and sphygmomanometer.
“Sustainability and the passion for inspiring positive change have always been the backbone of the work that we do, allowing us to do good while doing well. I gratefully share this recognition with my MPIC and mWell Family, who share the same purpose of making a difference in the lives of many. We are committed to bolstering our sustainability efforts and be an instrument to our country’s sustainable development,” Cabal-Revilla said.
With her empowering leadership, MPIC also bested giants in the global business arena and clinched the most coveted Finance for the Future Award. After a rigorous three-stage judging process, MPIC emerged as the winner in the “Embedding an Integrated Approach” category in the solely merit-based sustainability accolade. The Finance for the Future Award is a partnership between Accounting for Sustainability, Deloitte, and the Institute of Chartered Accountants in England and Wales. It recognizes organizations and individuals that support the integration of sustainability into financial decision-making.
