The success of YGC is mainly attributed to its leader, Ambassador Alfonso T. Yuchengco. When Don Enrique T. Yuchengco died in 1953, he left his son Alfonso all the businesses and its management. Using what he had learned from his fatherAmbassador Yuchengco was able to make the companies flourish even during difficult times.
One of the keys to Ambassador Yuchengco’s early success in business is his ability to make friends and interact productively with business colleagues. The valuable contacts and opportunities he developed through his social network helped his companies expand rapidly. Associates like to point out that his openness to setting up joint ventures, especially with foreign partners, has been one of his most important assets.
Ambassador Yuchengco’s career has spanned many eras starting from the Philippine Commonwealth, through the Second World War, the years of economic expansion in the 1950s and 1960s as well as the difficult years of martial law in the 1970s and 1980s. Throughout his career as a businessman and a diplomat, he has time and again espoused social discipline and national pride. His belief that both are necessary ingredients for progress and development has served his companies and the nation well.
The energy or force created by various parts or processes working in concert is the essence of synergy. It is the strength of many, fusing into the power of one.
Synergy is a time-honored practice within the Yuchengco Group of Companies. Individually, its companies are leaders in their respective industries, exerting their own authority and influencing the tides of business in their sectors.
Collectively, they draw upon resources infinitely greater than what they could ever hope to do alone, resulting in gains that are just as great for all. Through the YGC synergy, companies unite, industries rub shoulders, and more opportunities for growth arise. The principle of synergy is enshrined in the corporate of the YGC.
When people of different backgrounds and skills work together,
They create a power greater than the sum of their individual abilities.
This is the strength of synergy.
And this is the strength of YGC.
The Blue Hexagon is the corporate logo of the Yuchengco Group of Companies. It was conceived with synergy in mind. Its six interlocking trapezoidal fields represent the conglomerate’s founding businesses: life insurance, non-life insurance, banking and finance, investments, transportation and communication, and manufacturing and construction. The design gives the impression of a dynamo spinning on its hub—dynamic and ever-moving. The hexagon is viewed as a celestial sphere that radiates power, energy, and productivity.
The YGC corporate logo represents integrated financial services—symbolic of how member-companies within the Yuchengco Group complement one another’s efforts to promote economic growth. Notwithstanding its diversity, the YGC has remained a solid-well-directed team, deriving its best strength from its synergy.
