A significant operation poised for further growth. This is no mean feat and we’re very thankful for Miguel’s strong contribution and leadership.
“Miguel and I have been talking for a while about his desire to rebalance and therefore step down as a CEO and feel that now is the right time to take this step as we have a balanced top management team across all of the brands and a good successor in the form of BoyP. This means we can continue to build on our momentum in an increasingly important market like the Philippines. BoyP doesn’t need an introduction given his track record within the industry where has held many leadership positions. We are very optimistic about the future.” added Dick.
“It’s been a great journey over the past few years with Dentsu Aegis Network and this is another exciting step in my career and in the growth and development of Dentsu Aegis Network Philippines. I look forward to working with all of the teams here to continue to innovate the way we work with our clients and to provide new opportunities to grow our business,” added BoyP.
“The business is in a very good place with a strong client base, passionate and talented team, and a growing reputation for outstanding work on all fronts. I’m looking to reignite my entrepreneurial spirit and more time with my family,” said Miguel Ramos. “The future is truly bright for Dentsu Aegis Network in the Philippines. I am proud to have been part of the journey and look forward seeing how BoyP takes it to the next level.”
