“Alsons Dev continues to build and expand its services to cater to our stakeholders’ needs and preferences, and Miguel’s appointment is a crucial step in advancing this goal. He will be responsible for further growing our existing properties and leading the development of upcoming projects. This includes our expansion into the Soccsksargen region, where we will be launching our first mixed-use development outside Davao City,” said Nicasio I. Alcantara, Alsons Dev president. “With his experience as director of Alsons Aquaculture Corporation, we are confident that he will be able to lead Alsons Dev in the right direction, with the welfare of the community as his top priority.”
