SGV hosted the second Management Services (MS) Alumni Reunion last 26 November 2019 at the Washington SyCip Development Center (WSDC), with over 100 former SGVeans in attendance.
The MS Division, which was formed in 1957, was SGV’s answer to the growing market for management consultancy services. It was the first of its kind in the country, and played a significant role in the growth of the Firm. Over the years, the division helped to optimize the productivity, operations and systems of many companies. It eventually became known locally and internationally as SGV Consulting.

The homecoming started off with quick tours of parts of SGV Building 1, such as the former MS office area at the 6th floor, the executive offices at the 14th floor, and the e-Café area at the 15th floor, formerly called the Pamaypay Room. A thanksgiving mass officially commenced the reunion. SGV Chairman and Managing Partner J. Carlitos G. Cruz (JGC) then welcomed the attendees, sharing with them the Firm’s achievements, legacy and development over the years.

GV hosted its annual Alumni Homecoming last 9 September at the Rizal Ballroom of the Makati Shangri-La Hotel. With the message “Wherever your working world takes you, your SGV family is always delighted to take you home,” the Firm welcomed about 1,400 former SGVeans.
Alumni enjoyed game booths like Is your vision 2020?, Reaching the gold standard, Strengthen the foundation, SGV through the years, and SGVeans, game ka na ba? The event also featured a 360-degree photo booth, allowing guests to enjoy a unique video souvenir. A pop-up store offered SGV merchandise, with proceeds donated to the SGV Foundation.
