ARANETA CITY takes pride in its legacy of giving first and memorable lifestyle and entertainment experiences for the past decades.

These are contributions from the influential women who left an impressive mark in their respective fields and gave more prominence to the Araneta name: Judy Araneta-Roxas, who is known for her political and philanthropic activities; Stella Marquez-Araneta, who is passionate in promoting Filipina beauties around the world; and Margarita Araneta Fores, whose love for food and local products has touched many lives.

Following the footprints of these iconic ladies is a new set of female leaders, who are changing the landscape of business with their thorough industry experience and dedication for work. These talented professionals are ready to carry on the rich heritage of the Aranetas’ prominent legacy.

In celebration of International Women’s Month, the Araneta Group pays tribute to the great female executives who relentlessly keep it truly the “City of Firsts.”

These exceptional executives of the Araneta Group show how a company, which embraces diversity and recognizes great leadership, regardless of gender, survives the test of time. They are proof of how passion and courage are every woman’s instruments for raising the bar for others to exceed.

The power women at the “City of Firsts” are paving the way for the next generation of female leaders. It is a clear statement of how women on top can steer a difference and help make a hard-earned legacy last.

Among them are Irene Jose, Entertainment; Chacha Juinio, Food Retail; Maria Manlulu-Garcia, Hospitality; Diane Romero, Business Development and Corporate Social Responsibility; Marjorie Go Marketing and Promotions; and Lorna Fabian, Office and Retail Leasing.
