8 October 2017 – The Makati Business Club (MBC) pays its respects to Washington z. Sycip, a founding
trustee in 1981 till 1994. Just last month on the 35th anniversary celebration of MBC, Mr. Sycip honored us
with his presence to receive the special award for his contributions and wise stewardship of the MBC.
Apart from MBC, Mr. Sycip was instrumental in setting up many other organizations and institutions
including SGV, one of the country’s premier local company and AIM the country’s leading business school.
He was generous not only in sharing his wealth but also with his wisdom, advising captains of industry,
Philippine presidents and many others who sought his counsel.
He will be sorely missed but he led a full life and leaves behind a lasting legacy to the country.
