BPI Trust appoints new head

BPI Asset Management and Trust Corp. appointed chief operating officer Sheila Marie Tan as its new president and chief executive effective July 1, 2018.

She succeeded Mario Miranda, who served in the trust department for over three decades.

Tan, a lawyer, joined BPI AMTC in 2017, after a four-year stint as head of strategic advisory at BPI Capital Corp. and just as Bank of the Philippine Islands spun off its trust department as a stand-alone trust corporation.

She has almost 20 years of experience in the real estate industry and served as chief legal counsel of Ayala Land Inc. and co-managing director of Ayala Group Legal before joining BPI.

“I am excited and grateful for the opportunity I have been given. Taking BPI AMTC forward today—where the markets are challenging and the investors want more—is certainly daunting. But with an organization that has been built on a culture of excellence and innovation, we will make success happen,” said Tan.

She graduated cum laude with a Bachelor of Science Degree in Economics from the University of the Philippines, Diliman, where she also obtained her Bachelor of Laws degree.
