Pioneer Insurance formally inaugurated last night its LEED-Platinum Certified Pioneer House CDO building in downtown Cagayan de Oro City.

The 7-storey building is the first LEED-Platinum building in the Visayas-Mindanao area and just the second LEED-Platinum after the Zuellig Building in Makati City.


Cutting the ribbon are (from left): Dr. Jaime Aristotle B. Alip, CARD MRI Founder and Managing Director, Insurance Commissioner Emmanuel F. Dooc, City Mayor Oscar Moreno, Pioneer Chairman David Coyukiat, and Pioneer Senior VP Sally Ong Pac.



A bevy of guests from the insurance industry were on hand to witness the milestone.
