I am inspired by your stories on how hard you’ve worked for this company. I believe we were able to maintain and live by our mission and that is to do things the right way.
-Lorenzo Ocampo, PETNET President
PETNET, Inc. celebrates its 18th year anniversary in the business of providing Filipinos and their families with fast and reliable remittance and other financial services. PETNET is the largest Western Union agent in the country. PETNET held a ceremony with the theme “PETNET @18: Change. Challenge. Heroes.” Team members celebrated the day with a thanksgiving mass officiated by Fr. Tito Caluag followed by an employee recognition program. Service awardees were honored and team members with exemplary performance were also recognized.
Earlier this year, the company officially announced to its business partners and key stakeholders its new brand name, PERA HUB, which intends to bring PETNET closer to its goal of being the largest and most preferred payment-related transactions center. The brand reboot is a welcome change to effectively communicate the company’s expanded services, as well as its being part of the Aboitiz Group. AEV acquired majority ownership of PETNET in the middle of 2015.
There was change last year with the Aboitiz Equity Ventures coming in as the new majority owner. With that change, we were challenged to do better. Through those challenges we became heroes. Ladies and gentlemen, we are PETNET.
