When you’re chosen for a particular role, I think God gives you everything you need to succeed in that role, to succeed in that mission.Cocolife President and CEO Atty. Martin Loon
In less than two years of Atty. Martin Loon’s leadership, Cocolife reached its highest net income in its 42 years in the business. He has led the way in making reforms that helped Cocolife gain its first international awards such as the Most Outstanding Life Insurance Company and Most Outstanding Healthcare Provider in the Philippines at the International Business Magazine Awards this 2021. He also made the decision that would impact the lives of 50,000 Filipino families with about P1 billion in COVID-19 related claims.
We had been doing business for 42 years in the Philippines at the time. I felt that if we were able to do this during good times, we should also be there for the Filipinos during bad times.
