Stratpoint COO Elected to PSIA Board

Mary Rose "MR" dela Cruz, Chief Operating Officer at Stratpoint, has been elected as a member of the 2014 Board of Directors of the Philippine Software Industry Association (PSIA). PSIA is a nonprofit organization that promotes the growth and global competitiveness of the Philippine software industry and represents the biggest alliance of software development enterprises in the Philippines.

MR was elected to the Execom as Treasurer and will chair the committee on Information and Research. She will also be working hand in hand with other members of the board to support PSIA's capability development committee that aims to increase the skills and capabilities of Filipinos in software engineering and product development.

"This year marks my 25th year since graduating from computer science in U.P. Diliman so I thought this is an opportune time to try to give more back to both the academe and the industry that has nurtured me all these years," said COO dela Cruz.

"With my current experience working for a U.S. venture-backed company and involvement with investors like Dado Banatao and his colleagues at PhilDev foundation, I hope to serve as a conduit for the PSIA and our colleagues in Philippine academe to PhilDev and other Silicon Valley professionals in their network. Hopefully, we can get more PSIA companies involved in the R&D efforts being planned and increase our global impact," dela Cruz added.

Last year, MR was recognized as the 2013 Professional Degree Awardee for Computer Science by the University of the Philippines Alumni Engineers (UPAE). Each year, the UPAE selects alumni from the UP College of Engineering who have distinguished themselves in their respective professions. The formal awarding ceremony was held during the UP College of Engineering Alumni homecoming last November 9, 2013.

MR is a magna cum laude graduate of Computer Science at the University of the Philippines. She has a Master's Degree in Computing from Macquarie University in Sydney, Australia. She has managed and delivered complex global I.T. projects in industries such as financial securities, insurance, banking, telecommunications, and transportation. She spent 14 years working at Headstrong in various roles such as project manager, technical architect, and head of delivery for the Manila Global Delivery Center. At Stratpoint, she is in charge of the company's operations.

AseanAffairs   04 January 2011

It is commonplace in journalism to write two types of articles at the transition point between the year that has passed and the New Year. As this writer qualifies as an “old hand” in observing Thailand with a track record dating back 14 years, it is time take a shot at what may unfold in Thailand in 2011.

The first issue that can’t be answered is the health of Thailand’s beloved King Bhumibol, who is now 83 years old. He is the world's longest reigning monarch, but elaborate birthday celebrations in December failed to mask concern over his health. More
