MANILA, Philippines - DMCI Holdings, Inc. founding chairman David M. Consunji received the highest honors at this year’s Asia CEO Awards.

Regarded as the father of the contemporary construction industry in the Philippines, Consunji was conferred the Lifetime Contributor Award for the private sector in recognition of his decades-long contribution to nation building.

Ambassador Jose Cuisia Jr., Philippine envoy to the United States, was awarded the Lifetime Contributor award for the public sector.

Consunji is credited for building structures and landmarks that defined urban skylines and delivered real benefits to countless Filipinos. He also served as Department of Public Works and Highways secretary.

His company, DM Consunji, Inc. (DMCI), constructed many of the buildings in the Makati and Ortigas financial districts, the South Metro Manila Skyway, LRT 1 North Extension, Philippine International Convention Center, and Cultural Center of the Philippines, among others.

His son, DMCI Holdings chairman Isidro A. Consunji, received the prestigious award during the recognition rites at the Grand Ballroom of the Marriott Hotel in Newport City.

“More than an individual recognition, the Lifetime Contributor of the Year Award will form part of the heritage and legacy of my father and the companies he established,” Consunji said.

“His accomplishments will continue to define our heritage, and his legacy shall serve as our standard and inspiration,” he added.
