Providing key updates on its network transformation program, Globe Telecom President and CEO Ernest Cu described the company’s massive modernization effort as “different” in many ways from a traditional transformation that other networks go through.

What better way to celebrate the amazing 25 years of Cebuana Lhuillier’s amazing Pawning and Remittance Service and a lot of other top notch financial services than through a night of world-class Filipino talent.
