The Philippine contingent of our growing Control Tower team moved into new digs this week.
The move is long overdue and will allow us to expand operations – continue meeting the technical support needs of our resellers, and to offer additional services that take advantage of the exceptional talent pool available in this region.
Our new office is located in the Negros First CyberCentre, a newly developed state-of-the-art technology hub in the city of Bacolod, which is in the Negros Island Region (about an hour by air from Manila). Bacolod has been recognized as one of four Philippine centers of excellence for information technology and business process outsourcing, and was recently named one of the Top 100 outsourcing destinations by the research organization Tholons. Known as the “City of Smiles” because of the warmth and hospitality of its citizens, Bacolod has developed into one of the more exciting global offshoring destinations in recent years.
As it turns out, Bacolod also happens to be my father’s hometown and in an interesting twist (at least to me) the new office is located on Hernaez Street which was named after my Grand Uncle, Pedro Hernaez.
