IT-BPM industry veteran and advocate Rey Untal joins Pointwest as its new president and CEO.
Pointwest, a 100% Filipino-owned global IT solutions and services company, recently made the announcement, highlighting his expertise in IT consulting and outsourcing and over 30 years of experience in companies like Accenture, Nestle, Cargill, and International Container Terminal Services.
In his previous post as president and CEO of the IT and Business Process Association of the Philippines (IBPAP), Untal strongly advocated for the industry and became an instrumental voice in pushing for its continued growth amid challenges pre-pandemic and during the current health crisis, including maintaining the country’s competitiveness in the global landscape. He also collaborated closely with industry leaders, stakeholders, and the public sector in pushing for policies beneficial to the sector.
At Pointwest, Untal said he hopes to be part of the journey that will further establish the company as the template of what a “true Pinoy pure-play IT-BPM company” will look like, a Filipino organization delivering digitally enabled services and solutions globally, heavily leveraging the unique Filipino brand of service.
“The organizations which will be viewed as having successfully navigated the pivot in the reimagined world are those that will be able to scale up quickly into everything digital,” Untal said. “Pointwest is nimble enough to continually redefine how business is done and has put together a suite of offerings and capabilities that support this digital thrust. We’re not just a service-only organization but we’re also into digitally enabled services and developing platforms and products that will help accelerate the necessary transformation of companies that we will be engaging with.”
“His (Untal) deep understanding and vast network in the industry, including his perspective on the global marketplace, will enable him to steer Pointwest towards greater heights and continue to uplift the Filipino talent in the global IT-BPM landscape,” Pointwest said in a statement.
