Knowing our Smartmatic women (part I)

Last February, the magazine Where Women Work featured a special report on some of our amazing Smartmatic ladies and how they are making a profound impact around the world. We invite you to read it to find out more about these fearless pioneers.

FILIPINAS ORDOÑO
Account Associate Manager for APAC 

"Joining Smartmatic was one of the best decisions I've ever made." 

"There's nothing more fulfilling than being part of a company that brings about positive change in a country," says Filipinas. "In 2010, Smartmatic's automated election systems gave the Philippines fast, accurate and transparent elections for the first time. Their success directly resulted in political stability and economic growth - and I was right where history was made." 

Filipinas has worked in the ICT industry for over two decades, with special focus on sales and marketing. Prior to Smartmatic she was with Fujitsu, working across a broad range of industries including retail, banking and finance, government and commercial. 

In Smartmatic, Filipinas leads the APAC Sales Team, a group of professionals with a passion for excellence. The unit handles all pre-sales activities in the region. These include demonstrations, government project bids, events and exhibits. In addition, her team also spearheads Smartmatic's corporate responsibility activities and manages Smartmatic's public image. 

"Joining Smartmatic was one of the best decisions I've ever made. The company's significant social impact motivates me to perform to the best of my abilities. I particularly like how Smartmatic recognises excellence," says Filipinas. Barely a year after joining Smartmatic, she received the Dragon Award which is given to selected employees for exemplary performance surpassing expectation. 

"Working for Smartmatic has been a roller coaster ride filled with great successes and even greater challenges and I'm certainly looking forward to many further exciting opportunities."
