Our Leaders Share Their Heartfelt Message to Everyone

May 17, 2024 | Blog

Venturing Together holds a deeper meaning for IT Group, Inc. (ITG). It has been 21 years, and the company continues to grow and succeed. This wouldn’t be possible without the people who keep venturing with us, business partners who support shared goals and beliefs toward digital transformation, and our clients who entrust us with co-creating and co-owning an innovative solution to achieve success for their business endeavors. Today, ITG celebrates another year of milestone of being in the tech industry for 21 years— a true testament to what venture together means to all of us.

This year, we invited key people across the ASEAN region to send their heartfelt messages to all those who contribute to ITG’s success, from the Director of Human Capital Division of Hexagon Group of Companies Kriskyril Lapitan, Managing Director of Malaysia and Singapore VJ Africa, ITG Indonesia Head of Finance and Human Capital Administration Anthon Danuprasetiyo, to the Head of Support Operations Center Allan Ayeras

Your message to our people, clients, and business partners as we celebrate our 21st anniversary?

Kriskyril: As we celebrate our 21st anniversary, we extend our deepest gratitude to our dedicated employees, loyal clients, and valued business partners. Your unwavering support and trust have been the cornerstone of our success, propelling us forward with each passing year.

We’ve nurtured professional relationships built on integrity, collaboration, and mutual respect. As we look back on our journey, we remain committed to delivering exceptional value to our customers, inspired by the milestones we’ve achieved and the challenges we’ve overcome. Here’s to another year of growth, innovation, and shared success!

VJ: A fellow entrepreneur once told me, “The most important thing in business is to stay in business.” Staying in business for 21 years is not easy, especially in the crazy world of technology, where everything moves at light speed, and disruptive change is the norm.

The successes (and challenges) of the past 21 years can be attributed to three things: our people’s commitment, our partners’ collaboration, and our clients’ trust. We have been blessed with amazing people (top to bottom, end to end), leading technologies (from business solutions to platforms that build solutions), and visionary clients (across industries, big and small). This is the ITG recipe through the years, all 21 of them.

Anthon: I want to give my appreciation to everyone who has been part of this incredible journey for the last 21 years. Your dedication and collaboration have helped us achieve extraordinary things, from clients to business partners and, of course, to our people—our venturers. 

As the Head of Finance and Human Capital Administration here in ITG Indonesia, I’ve seen our organization grow and evolve firsthand. Together, we’ve overcome challenges and laid the groundwork for continued success. Our commitment to innovation and customer satisfaction has been the key to our achievements. I’m proud of our team, where everyone’s contributions are valued. I’m excited about the opportunities ahead. Let’s keep working together to reach even greater heights. Thank you for being part of our success story. Here’s to many more years of collaboration and achievement.

Allan: Today marks a momentous occasion as we celebrate 21 years of ITG’s journey. I’m filled with gratitude and admiration for everyone who has been part of our continuous and successful journey. Throughout our journey, we have fearlessly ventured into uncharted territories, tackling some of the most complex challenges organizations face today. It is through our collective resilience and determination that we have emerged successful.

To our esteemed clients, your trust and partnership have been the cornerstone of our success. To our respected business partners, your collaboration and support have been invaluable.  As we celebrate this special milestone, let us reaffirm our commitment to excellence, innovation, and collaboration. Together, we will continue to confidently venture into the future, leveraging modernized technologies and industry insights to solve the most challenging problems facing organizations today. May the years ahead be filled with even greater opportunities for growth, prosperity, and collaboration, and may our partnership continue to flourish for many years.

Why do you think employees are the reason behind ITG’s success? 

Kriskyril: ITG employees are the company’s heartbeat, driving its success through their dedication, expertise, and passion. Their hard work and commitment lay the foundation for innovation, productivity, and customer satisfaction. With ITG’s diverse talents and perspectives, employees fuel collaboration and problem-solving, propelling the organization toward its goals. Ultimately, their collective effort and determination transform vision into reality, making them valuable assets to the company’s success. 

VJ: ITG is a diverse and inclusive company where employees share a strong customer-centric culture. Everyone pursues excellence relentlessly, will stop at nothing to drive results but will always have each other’s backs. Our employees are our People, our Purpose, and our Power. We are where we are and have reached 21 years because of them.

Anthon: Employees are the reason behind ITG’s success through the years. ITG owes its success to its people for being passionate and driven in their respective careers. Happy employees make the workplace more enjoyable. That’s why we’ve got benefits and programs that help our team thrive in and out of the office–from their career to their personal lives. We also make sure that we involve our people and hear their ideas by co-creating and co-owning solutions for clients through different stages of projects, championing teamwork. We’re lucky to have such a talented and dedicated team that is passionate, as we’re all about open collaboration. When we work together, we’re unstoppable.

I firmly believe that employees are the heartbeat of any organization. Their contributions extend far beyond their job descriptions and directly impact the company’s trajectory in numerous ways. Their interactions with customers shape perceptions and influence brand loyalty.  Whether they’re from sales presales, implementation, support, back office, or any other team, their collective effort helps ITG to succeed in every challenge and opportunity it faces. Each team member brings their unique skills and perspectives to the table, enriching our collective knowledge and capabilities. To our dedicated team members, your unwavering dedication to our mission has been truly inspiring. Your commitment to continuous learning and growth has been instrumental in our ability to deliver exceptional service and exceed expectations.

21 years of Venturing Together

For over 21 years in the industry, IT Group, Inc. has been the leading IT Solutions Partner in the Philippines and the ASEAN region.  ITG is an ISO 9001:2015 Certified company with regional offices located in the Philippines, Indonesia, Malaysia, and Singapore. We help 200+ clients across the ASEAN region on their digital transformation journey and have a solid portfolio of 250+ successful projects. As we celebrate new milestones of another successful year, ITG is excited to move forward and venture into the future of technology and businesses.  

Last year, president and CEO Cris P. Gamboa shared a powerful message for everyone, reaffirming that the success of ITG belongs to its people, business partners, and clients who co-create and co-own innovative solutions with us. “Our first win was our first customer outside of our family enterprise. They gave us the confidence to venture ahead. We needed [that] validation [for ourselves] to continue as the software we’ve built was not only usable but, more so, added value to our client. It brought us the succeeding wins,” he said.  

Meanwhile, the Managing Director for PH, Jose “Jop” Adolfo Cornelio, Jr., shared the importance of partnership in venturing together, proving why ITG remains the leading IT Solution Partner. “We are venturing together [with our clients] because we are inheriting part of their business—from them purchasing the solutions to training their people to supporting them when they have problems. They just call us, so it’s a full-cycle [and genuine] partnership [with us],” he said.    

Be part of the strong and successful journey of ITG.  

Let’s Venture Together.
