International Women’s Month: Globe Fetes Women Leaders, Employees as Pillars of Strength



The world may have come a long way in gender equality, yet women’s dominance in top business leadership is still rare. But in Globe, the Philippines’ leading digital solutions group, this is precisely the case.


As the world celebrates International Women’s Day on March 8, Globe acknowledges the undeniable impact its female leaders have had on the business and the lives of its customers.

“At Globe, we value talent because we believe it is our people that will keep our Circle of Happiness going. We are fortunate to have many female leaders and employees who possess the qualities necessary to carry out Globe’s mission and vision to keep us moving forward,” said Globe President and CEO Ernest Cu.


Globe currently has seven top women leaders taking on crucial roles, serving as strong and sturdy pillars of the organization.



They are Rizza Maniego-Eala, Chief Finance Officer and Chief Risk Officer; Issa Guevarra-Cabreira, Chief Commercial Officer; Rebecca Eclipse, Chief Transformation & Operations Officer and Chief Customer Experience Officer; Yoly Crisanto, Chief Sustainability Officer and Corporate Communications SVP; Atty. Irish Salandanan-Almeida, Chief Privacy Officer; Atty. Marisalve Ciocson-Co, Chief Compliance Officer; and Rosalin Palacol, Chief Audit Executive.


Since 2017, Globe has also implemented a Board Diversity Policy, which promotes and observes diverse membership among its directors. In 2021, Saw Phaik Hwa held the role of Independent Director and chair of the Board Risk Oversight Committee in Globe.



Eight of the Globe Group Leaders are also women, all of whom have contributed significantly to Globe’s business beyond telco and the company’s pivot into a digital solutions platform.


First on the list is Martha Sazon, who was instrumental in making GCash the country’s leading e-wallet platform, with 55 million registered users.  Mynt, the financial technology firm behind GCash, is the only double unicorn in the Philippines.

Kickstart Ventures’ Minette Navarrete is a well-respected figure in the startup scene.  Through her strong leadership, Kickstart is now the largest venture capital asset management company in the Philippines, managing $255M in assets, and funding 55 investments across 7 countries, with two unicorns in its portfolio.


Mharicar Castillo-Reyes, on the other hand, has led shared services company Asticom to a significant revenue growth at a CAGR of 33% since 2015. Asticom launched four subsidiaries last year alone. Cindy Toh, who leads e-commerce platform PureGo, also steered the company’s growth in the retail services industry with its convenient e-grocery services, with over 75% growth in sales since January 2021.



Similarly, digital and mobile marketing solutions provider AdSpark continued its success by hitting the P1.2-billion in revenues under the leadership of Gretchen Largoza.  At the same time, Denise Seva led LIVE MNL, previously Globe’s production and events management arm Globe Live, to become the partner of choice for on-ground and digital events, especially during the pandemic shift.


Meanwhile, Joan Penaflorida led Yondu’s growth into one of the country’s top IT Managed Services providers. Jasmin Montelibano did the same to ECPay, now directly managing over 89,000 general trade retail base as of end-2021.



Globe’s dedication to diversity and gender equality extends to the rest of its employees. Forty-six percent of its over 8,000-strong workforce are women.


As a signatory to the United Nations Global Compact (UNGC), the company ensures that no employee is discriminated against, based on age, gender, marital status, personal beliefs, religion and spiritual practices, political affiliation, and sexual orientation.


Globe is committed to 10 of the 17 United Nations Sustainable Development Goals, supporting UN SDG No. 5, giving equal opportunities to women for leadership.

Globe Logs over 11M Prepaid SIM Registrants, urges Customers to Register before April 26 Deadline



Globe, the leader in Mobile, has registered more than 11 million active prepaid SIMs around a month after the law mandating all Filipinos to register their SIMs took full effect.

Globe hit the milestone 11-million mark on Monday, January 30, 2023, a month after the SIM Registration Act was rolled out as a measure to stop cybercrime, including scam messages that proliferated due to the anonymity provided by prepaid SIMs.

“We are grateful to our customers for promptly registering their SIMs. We understand the importance of addressing the proliferation of scam and spam messages and have made it our priority to provide our customers with a seamless registration process. We are committed to meeting the deadline and continuing our efforts to protect our customers from scammers and fraudsters,” said Darius Delgado, Head of Globe’s Consumer Mobile Business.

Globe urges its customers who have yet to register to visit its user-friendly registration portal There are an estimated 87.4 million existing SIM users under the Globe network.

Registration via the GlobeOne app will begin in February as an added channel where customers may register their SIMs. As a user of GlobeOne, customers will have access to exclusive offers and deals that are available only in the app.

Globe also provided support for government-led assisted registration in priority sites nationwide from January 25 to 27. Globe established booths in 15 areas and provided assistance to anyone who needed help, especially those in need of special assistance, including senior citizens, PWDs awww and those using basic/feature phones.


Other than supporting the NTC-led assisted SIM registration, Globe has also started rolling out its own on-site assistance booths across the country. From January 27 to 29, it led SIM registration assistance in 30 Puregold branches in strategic locations in Luzon, Visayas and Mindanao. It will extend SIM registration assistance in other locations soon.

These efforts aim to provide inclusive ways to get its customers registered by the April 26, 2023 deadline. Users who fail to complete their registration on time will have their SIMs deactivated.

Even before the new law was implemented, Globe has taken several steps to curb disruptive messages through proactive blocking, threat intelligence partnerships with financial institutions, a customer reporting portal, plus an awareness and education campaign to help customers with online protection.

Globe Deactivates, Blacklists More than 50,000 SIMs Linked to Fraud in 2022



Leading digital solutions platform Globe deactivated and blacklisted more than 50,000 SIMs last year as it continued to intensify consumer protection initiatives amid the rising cases of online fraud.

Globe deactivated 20,225 SIMs and blacklisted 35,333 SIMs involved in scam and spam messages in 2022 alone as part of its campaign for internet safety.

This was on top of the record 2.72 billion scam and spam messages it blocked last year, 83.4 million of which were bank-related. All these efforts have been on-going to protect customers from harmful content and fraud before the enactment of the SIM Registration Act.

“Globe recognizes the growing threat posed by scammers, who use various tactics, including text messages, to deceive innocent victims into giving up personal information that could be used to compromise their financial accounts. We will continue to invest in our cybersecurity program to protect our customers from these unscrupulous individuals,” said Anton Bonifacio, Globe Chief Information Security Officer.

Under its filtering protocol, Globe deactivates SIMs within its network once detected to have been involved in fraud. Meanwhile, SIMs outside of the Globe network are blacklisted to prevent them from sending to Globe.

Globe Deactivates SIM Blocked

On its own, Globe has taken a proactive approach to combat cybercrime schemes through various initiatives. It has implemented blocking mechanisms, established partnerships with financial institutions for threat intelligence, created a customer reporting portal, and launched an awareness and education campaign to empower customers with the knowledge and tools they need to protect themselves.


Meanwhile, in a move to address growing concern over the use of unregistered SIMs in committing cybercrimes, the government introduced Republic Act No. 11934, also known as the SIM (subscriber identity module) Registration Act. Signed into law in October, the measure requires all mobile and broadband users to register their SIMs with their respective service providers to ensure that they are properly identified.

As of January 25, Globe has logged 10.4 million registrations of prepaid SIMs.
