We sincerely regret the recent incident at Clark International Airport and we
again extend our sincere apologies to Mr. Jovenil Delacruz. MIASCOR
Management immediately reached out to him upon learning about this
unfortunate incident and we have already reached an amicable settlement. The
Company, together with airport authorities, also acted very quickly and placed
those allegedly involved under preventive suspension. They have since been
terminated and criminal and administrative charges have been filed against them.

We would like to stress that we do not tolerate this type of behavior from any of
our employees. MIASCOR is committed to conducting its business with the
highest standards of compliance and ethics. And every employee is expected to
demonstrate professionalism, honesty and integrity.

We shall formally issue an appeal to the President to kindly reconsider his
position on behalf of our almost 4,000 regular employees and their families who
will be affected. It is unfortunate that the actions of six erring employees in Clark
International Airport have negatively impacted the Company.

The recent incident does not define what MIASCOR stands for and how it
operates. MIASCOR has been in operations since 1974 and has presence in
several key airports in the country, including NAIA, providing aviation services.Many of our customers and the traveling public can attest to our service
excellence and through the years the Company has been a major contributor to
the growth of the country’s aviation and tourism industry.

The Company shall do everything it can to remedy the situation.


Marriott Hotel Manila Welcomes New Executives

From back-to-back expansion projects, Marriott Hotel Manila starts off 2018 giving a preview to another exciting year to look forward as two high-caliber professionals join its executive roster – Marian Villar-Barnes as Cluster Director of Human Resources and Erwin King-eo as Loss Prevention Manager. With an integrated hotel complex, they are both expected to keep the hotel on top of its game and prepare for more developments in the future.

Marian is a well-known HR professional with a long credible experience in the industry. She is an active member and held the Vice-president position in the Association of HR Managers in the Hospitality Industry (AHRM). Before joining Marriott, she was the Area Manager of Talent and Culture of Sofitel Manila and concurrently provided support for the pre-opening and post-opening requirements of the Accor Group in the country – significantly the recently acquired Raffles and Fairmont hotels. Her competitive career record can be traced back to her being a sports enthusiast, specifically a volleyball varsity player from grade school all the way to college.

Then, she has been keen in pursuing the hospitality industry right off college starting at Westin Philippine Plaza, where she worked her way up from HR Assistant to HR Manager over a 5-year period, and later became the Director for Human Resources in Oakwood Premier for several years. Her multi-property experiences, including the Cluster Director for HR and Training of the Ascott Philippines Group wherein she handled 5 properties in the Philippines, makes her recommendable for the exciting growth of Marriott in the country. Now she plays a significant role to be the HR Leader for Marriott Hotel Manila and soon-to-open properties Courtyard Iloilo and Sheraton Manila.

Meanwhile, Erwin is a Philippine Military Academy graduate with more than 20 years of experience in security operations. He was assigned in different units of the Philippine Navy and Armed Forces of the Philippines wherein he retired with a Commander rank in the Navy. He played key roles implementing nationwide security programs serving as Military Aide-de-Camp to then former Senate President Manny Villar, Intelligence Officer in AFP and Presidential Security Group, and Chief Officer in the International Affairs of Philippine Navy Headquarters.

His most recent job was an Executive Officer in the Office for Defense Reform in the Department of National Defense. Even in his personal time, Erwin enjoys sports a lot and reading or watching combat documentaries. Since Marriott Manila is now a top destination for both local and international events, hosting high-profile events like ASEAN recently, Erwin’s expertise is definitely a valuable addition to the team.

As we continue to raise the bar of Philippine tourism higher, we also commit to acquiring brilliant talents to deliver nothing but the world-class service,

says Bruce Winton, Cluster General Manager for Marriott Manila and Courtyard Iloilo. GM Winton also guarantees more exciting movements and news to expect from the hotel especially on career opportunities.

The Brickyard Grand Prix 2017: Fun With Four Wheels

Fun With Four Wheels: The Brickyard Grand Prix 2017

Tamiya Mini4WD cars are currently re-emerging as one of the hottest hobbies for all ages. While hardcore fans who have been keeping the hobby alive since the early 2000s held races in smaller venues, the recent Mini4WD renaissance brought with it the presence of races in more popular places in the Metro.

The Brickyard Grand Prix 2017: Fun With Four Wheels

The herald of the aforementioned return to the races was the recently concluded Brickyard Grand Prix (BGP) held at the Glorietta 5 open area. The two-day event brought together dozens of enthusiasts and over 100 cars to tear up the tracks.

On the first day, The BGP welcomed beginners and intermediate level hobbyists with a Build-and-Race event wherein participants simply have to purchase a new kit, build it, and try for the fastest 3-Lap run time of the day. For beginners, it was the perfect event to build their first car and experience the thrill of competition. For the initiated, it was the perfect excuse to buy a new kit to expand their respective parts stock.

Four champions were crowned on that day, one for each category: Regular Stock, Starter Set, Rev-Pro, and GT Stock. Each winner took home a trophy, and a Brickyard t-shirt.

The second day had a more serious, yet equally fun, tone. It was the actual race day. Glorietta 5’s open area was already bustling with racers, tweaking and modding their cars in preparation for the big race, as soon as the mall opened at 10:00 AM. And even before the first race began at 1:30 PM, the track was already warm from all the cars doing test runs.

The Brickyard Grand Prix 2017: Fun With Four Wheels

There were two race categories: Pro Stock, which only allowed parts that came from different standard Tamiya Race kits; and Advanced SpeedTech, which allowed participants to use the more sophisticated Tamiya tune-up parts.

At the end of around 50 heats, the top three racers from each category were given cash prizes, trophies, and the honor of being the first podium finishers in the first ever Brickyard Grand Prix.

It’s great fun to build a car, it’s an even bigger thrill to race them,

said Ferdie Kahn, owner of The Brickyard, and partner at Lil’s Hobby Center, the official local distributor of Tamiya.

There’s nothing like the rush of racing against fellow competitors who have put their hearts and souls into their builds. Through [the Brickyard Grand Prix], we hope give the hobbyists an opportunity to feel that rush,

he continued.

The BGP is organized by the Brickyard and Lil’s Hobby Center Glorietta. For more information on the stores activities and events, such as the BGP, you may visit their Facebook page at http://www.facebook.com/brickyardlhc.
