About Ma. Asuncion M. Golez

Ma. Asuncion M. Golez comes from a family of accountants.  She had her first exposure in the accounting profession  as a young girl of twelve, her father being a well-known CPA practitioner in Bacolod who used to be an active member of PICPA. She followed the footsteps of her father and inherited all the big hacienderos and taxpayers in negros occidental who are now her clients in her accounting firm Maravilla and Company CPAs and   in her AMGolez brokerage services.

Despite her being a sugar planter  with a lucrative realty business and accounting practice,  she may not know it, but you can feel her humility which is  evident in her way of expressing herself especially in her speeches.

She was imbued with the  values of humility and modesty by  the nuns of  St Scholastica College where she studied in the elementary and high school, after which she moved to college and graduated from the Far Eastern University Bachelor of Science in Accountancy.

She has been very active for over three decades  with  PICPA as a member of negros occidental chapter, having served as its president in 1999, as member or chairman of various PICPA national committees and as a regional director and national board member.  She has received many awards from PICPA, notable of which are the outstanding PICPA member award in 2004 and the Honorary Life Member (HLM) award in 2007.   She is  considered the godmother of the Performance Governance System (PGS) in the accountancy profession which she  supported and laboured together with the PGS committee since 2006  until it got the PGS institutionalized award, gold performance trailblazer award and the Island of Good Governance award, and  recognized  by  the International Federation of Accountants last June 31, 2018.

She is happily married to a sugar planter from Negros Occidental, Mr Eric Golez. They are blessed with two daughters and one son,  all professionals. Ma. Asuncion M. Golez is now a grandmother with  four grandkids. but look at her, she does not look like one.
