SGV founder Wash SyCip passes away at 96

 

The father of the Philippines’ biggest auditing firm died on a trip to the United States.

Former Finance Secretary Cesar Purisima said Washington SyCip died on Saturday, Oct. 7, en route to New York.

Purisima made the announcement on his Twitter account, as he shared his adoration for the genius and founder of the SyCip, Gorres, Velayo & Co. (SGV) which has emerged to be the biggest and most respected auditing firm in the country.

SyCip threw a grand birthday bash when he turned 96 on June 30.

Prior to his death, SyCip remained a constant presence among business circles, joining social events with his cane in hand.

SyCip retired from the SGV in 1996, but continued to hold key positions as adviser and member of the board for various companies. He also helped in putting up the Asian Institute of Management in 1966 and the Philippine Business for Social Progress in 1970.
