Isla Lipana & Co./PwC Philippines opens Davao office on its 100th year

14 Jun 2022

14 June 2022, Davao City — Isla Lipana & Co., the Philippine member firm of PwC global network (PwC Philippines), inaugurates their new office in Davao City today — its strategic hub in the South.

Housed at the 14-storey Davao Finance Center, the accounting and auditing firm’s newest office is unveiled in time for its 100th year of providing professional services in the Philippines.

Aldie Garcia, PwC Philippines’ VisMin Business Leader and Assurance Managing Partner, expresses the firm’s full support for the city, and for Mindanao as a whole. “We have been promoting Mindanao as an investment destination for years. Setting up our hub here in Davao is a testament to our continued commitment to help spur economic activity while serving our clients and stakeholders in the region.”

With offices in the cities of Makati, Cebu and Iloilo, PwC Philippines brings to Davao the trusted brand of audit, advisory and tax services that the firm has been known for. 

For his part, Roderick M. Danao, Chairman and Senior Partner, is optimistic. “With the Philippine economy picking up despite health threats and other challenges, our partners firmly believe that our presence in the South will translate to more business opportunities, more complex problems to solve, and better access to the consistent stream of talents that Davao and the rest of the region have to offer.”

Danao adds, “We are bringing the best of our people, capabilities and technology together to support our clients in Mindanao in building trust and delivering sustained outcomes for their businesses and society.”

As a partner who has contributed to the development and progress of Davao City, Isla Lipana & Co./PwC Philippines received an award from the Davao City Investment and Promotions Center (DCIPC) in 2019 for the review of the City’s Investment Incentive Code as part of the firm's efforts to empower the VisMin region.

Representatives from DCIPC and Megaworld Corporation, the developer of the township where the office is located, are among the guests who are expected to be present during the event.
