Indeed, our late Founder, Mr. Henry Sy Sr. or Tatang as he was fondly called by many of us in the SM family, has made such an indelible mark in the hearts of so many Filipino households. For inspiring us to dream big, for being a role model of integrity, and for giving us hope that we too can fulfill our destinies as long as we work hard and never settle for anything less than our potential.
We thank you, Tatang!
"There is no such thing as overnight success or easy money. If you fail, do not be discouraged; try again. When you do well, do not change your ways. Success is not just good luck: it is a combination of hard work, good credit standing, opportunity, readiness, and timing. Success will not last if you do not take care of it.” Henry Sy, Sr.
Today, SM has close to a thousand retail stores, 70 malls in the Philippines and 7 malls in China.
