IBM Adding 2 Phillippines Branches in Expansion Initiative; Mariels Almeda Winhoffer Comments

IBM has opened two new branches in the Philippines as part of a strategy to increase its presence in the country, the company announced Wednesday.

The company said the new offices, located in Pampanga and Davao, are part of the company’s plans to grow in regions outside of Manilla, the country’s capital.

IBM is also opening a research and development lab in the country (click here for our coverage of that initiative).

This marks the 75th year of IBM’s presence in the country and opened the offices to help the government in its Next Wave Cities program, said Mariels Almeda Winhoffer, country general manager of IBM Philippines.

IBM’s Pampanga office is located in Central Luzon, which has two economic zones, an international airport, a seaport, and industrial and agricultural areas.

The Davao office is in Mindanao’s financial and trade center, a strategic location that has international ties with neighboring countries Indonesia, Malaysia, Brunei and Australia.

IBM said it also partners with local groups, government organizations, business chambers and academic institutions to help promote technology to support economic development in the region.
