Teresita Sy-Coson is a kingmaker.
The newly-appointed chairman of SM Investments Corporation Jose Sio revealed he got his promotion only upon the suggestion of Henry Sy Sr.?s eldest daughter. In an interview, Sio shared that getting the chairman post ?was a surprise, as he had been pushing Sy?s children to groom the third generation to lead the family business.?
?But during a recent family board meeting, where it was decided that Sy was vacating his chairman post to become chairman emeritus, his eldest daughter, Teresita Sy-Coson suggested that Sio take his place.
Sio said Sy?s sons Henry Jr. and Harley agreed,? the ABS-CBN article read.
Apparently, getting on Tessie?s good side pays off. Right, chairman Sio? #
