Globe Group CEO to Discuss Journey From ‘Telco to Techco’ at SFF 2023

by November 14, 2023

Globe Group, a Philippines’ telecoms company, will be showcasing its tech journey at the Singapore Fintech Festival 2023 (SFF 2023) that had kicked off today (14 November).

A highlight at SFF 2023 will be the panel discussion titled “Building Unicorns: An ASEAN Success Story”, featuring Ernest Cu, President and CEO of Globe Group, and Martha Sazon, President and CEO of Mynt.

At the panel discussion, the two leaders of Globe’s business evolution are set to discuss the conglomerate’s digital transformation.

Globe’s evolution is marked by a 44% year-on-year increase in non-telco revenues, reaching PHP4.1 billion in the first three quarters of 2023.

A crucial part of Globe’s success is GCash, operated by Mynt, the Philippines’ only double unicorn. GCash’s net earnings skyrocketed to PHP1.62 billion in the first nine months of 2023, a 149% increase from the previous year.
