Richard S. Lim, President of Sun Life Grepa Financial, Inc. (Sun Life Grepa) was among the recipients of Mapua University's "The Outstanding Mapuan" (TOM) award this year.

The annual recognition is given to various alumni of Mapua who have excelled in their respective fields, or have made valuable contributions to the community, the welfare of the school, the country, or the world. It is an annual project, jointly presented by Mapua University and the National Association of Mapua Alumni (NAMA).

Lim's leadership and industry expertise has been recognized at Sun Life Financial over the years. During his stint from 2006 to 2010 , his team's work in P.T. Sun Life Indonesia was recognized several times in Sun Life Financial's CEO's Excellence Awards.

Upon his return to the Philippines, Lim was appointed Chief Business Operations Development Officer and was primarily responsible for the integration of Sun Life Philippines and Grepalife Financial Inc. back offices and operations. He was appointed Chief Operating Officer of Sun Life Grepa in October 2011 and then Head of Bancassurance in late 2013.

Under his leadership, the team won back-to-back CEO's Excellence Awards in 2012 and 2013 for the integration project and for Bancassurance business growth.

As the President of one of the leading insurance companies in the Philippines, Lim continues to believe in the power of teamwork. "Teamwork among great individuals brings out more of their talent," says Lim. "I am grateful to have been surrounded by people whose professional values have helped me become a better servant to Filipinos whose dreams we want to help build."
