A new home of Buena Mano Auto Best Buys (BMABB) stockyard was inaugurated last March 22, 2023 at the heart of Central Luzon in Guiguinto, Bulacan. Strategically located along the historical stretch of McArthur Highway, this new primary stockyard is accessible to all clients. With more than 1-hectare area, the vast yard can accommodate more than 500 vehicles.

Special guests from various BPI groups graced the occasion: SVP Chinky Lukban, AVP Anna Marie De Castro, and Mgr. Jodi Zipagan of Strategy & Finance; Loans Services & Recovery Officer Cherry Ann Guevarra (Acquired Asset Management Department) and Vince Lozano (Outsource Management Team); Business Manager Ed Glorioso and Asst. Business Manager Jonathan Mina of BPI Guiguinto Branch; and Arch. Ann Minelle C. Gaw from Facilities Services Group.

SAMS attendees include its Division Head, AVP Karen Canare; Team Heads SM Heidi Intia (Team 1-GMMA Real Estate & Bank-Owned Sales), SM Sheryl “Che” Gutierrez (Team 2-Provincial Real Estate & Nationwide Auto Sales) and SM Odita Balistoy (Team 3 Sales Support). Select officers and staff of SAMS Sales, Marketing, and Documentation units also attended the event.

Team 2 Head SM Che Gutierrez, who flew all the way from Davao Business Center, started the program with a welcome message. “Praying that this venue will be a place of growth and happiness and asking for blessings for all those who will be working in the BMABB Guiguinto Stockyard”, SM Gutierrez imparted. She ended the speech by thanking all those who made the project possible.

AVP Karen Canare gave her closing remarks.

“Here we are, opening the gates of our new BMABB Guiguinto Stockyard. Now that we have unfolded a new chapter, we are also entering an era of new challenges and hopefully, greater things to happen. SAMS Team, good luck to us and congratulations!”, AVP Canare declared.
