    Ayala Corp. yesterday announced the appointment effective April next year of Jose Teodoro Limcaoco as president of the Bank of Philippine Islands (BPI)

    Jaime Augusto Zobel de Ayala, Ayala chairman, said in a statement Limcaoco, currently the bank’s chief finance officer (CFO), will succeed Cezar Consing as president and chief executive officer after the BPI stockholders’ meeting set for April 22, 2021.

    Globe Telecom chief commercial Officer Alberto de Larrazabal will succeed Limcaoco as the Ayala Group’s CFO as well as chief risk officer, and chief sustainability officer.
