About Me

Alexandra G. Garcia, a long-serving senior executive, spent her career assisting in the management of the family's pioneering, entrepreneurial, and ever-expanding business. She most recently worked for CIP, or Chemical Industries of the Philippines, Inc., as Chief Operating Officer and Compliance & Information Officer. In September 2017, Garcia, who has been with the company for a long time, added Compliance & Information Officer to her list of responsibilities as COO.

On October 15, 2020, she and nine other CIP directors and executives resigned, roughly 70 years after family member Dr. Eusebio S. Garcia founded the organization. The Unioil group bought a 57 percent stake in the company from the group.

Dr. Eusebio S. Garcia founded CIP in 1951 as the Philippines' first chemical manufacturing company. CIP began by producing sulfuric acid, followed by fertilizer. As the company grew, it paved the way for the country's chemical industry to develop. CIP would eventually become the Chemphil Group of Companies, which included a number of joint venture companies co-owned by international partners. In yet another first, CIP expanded to build the Philippines' first polyphosphates and alkyl benzene plants.

Alexandra G. Garcia was also a member of the CAWC, Inc. board of directors. CAWC has been a world-class manufacturer of quality food, technical and ceramic grade phosphates, and phosphoric acid products for over 50 years and is a wholly owned subsidiary of CIP. By its multinational customers in the detergent and food industries, the company is a top-ranking chemical producer and supplier. The company continues to develop new high-value food grade phosphates to contribute to the economic development of the Philippines and the Asia Pacific Region as a BFAD-accredited food grade company for its food products.

Alexandra G. Garcia served on the board of Kemwater Phil Corp (KPC) and advised on a joint venture formed in 1998 with Kemira Oy of Finland. The company is a leading producer of chemicals for water treatment. Aluminum sulfate, an inorganic coagulant used to treat both drinking water and wastewater, is produced by KPC in solid and liquid form. The water, paper, and detergent industries are among its clients.
