JAZA proudly welcomes new BPI board member
The Ayala Corporation chairman and CEO gave tremendous praise for Dr. Astrid Tuminez.
“Dr. Astrid Tuminez is a living testament to how profoundly education can change a person’s life. She became fluent in six languages, including French, Russian, and Spanish. She went on to obtain a master’s degree in sovietology from Harvard, and a PhD in political science and government from MIT. She assisted in peace negotiations with the MILF during her time as a senior research consultant for the US Institute of Peace from 2003 to 2007, and went on to become vice-dean at Lee Kuan Yew School of Public Policy. Now Microsoft’s regional director for corporate, external, and legal affairs in Southeast Asia, Dr. Tuminez is also an accomplished speaker and a widely published author with a long and distinguished resumé,” Jaime Augusto Zobel de Ayala said on his Fb post.
It takes a lot to impress JAZA.
Congratulations, Dr. Tuminez!#
