Raymond – or Mong, as he is fondly called – leads Campaigns & Grey’s lean and mean Cebu team, which services clients in the Visayas and Mindanao (VisMin). Under Mong’s leadership, C&G Cebu continues to be the only full-service agency and 4As member operating outside of Metro Manila.
Mong has always had a passion for creative communications. With a background in Fine Arts, he started as account manager at C&G over a decade ago. Cascading Grey's global offerings to the VisMin clientele, Mong has helped pave the way for C&G Cebu to have an influential presence in the way advertising is done locally. He stood at the helm of the agency's successful campaigns for some of the Philippines' most notable real estate clients including giants Camella, Cebu Landmasters, Primary Homes, AboitizLand, Alsons Development Corp., and HTLand.
With a go-getter attitude and proven staying power, Mong has also led various widely successful and acclaimed launches for clients such as the Department of Health, Electrolux, AirAsia, BPI, WWF's Earth Hour, Rustan’s, Sheraton, and Prifood Corporation. Today, with his extensive experience in handling and growing C&G's regional clientele, Mong is known as one of the leading brand strategists in the Visayas and Mindanao.
