Fitting the grand reveal of Hyundai MasterCard, the event also served as a venue to celebrate the newfound partnership between the two companies and the culmination of the highly successful Sonata Masterpiece campaign, where both partners brought together the award-winning midsize sedan closer to the upscale market via exclusive deals and premiums.
One Night, One All-Winning Partnership
With their shared passion for service excellence, HARI and EastWest Bank presented the new Hyundai MasterCard to those who seek new ways to enjoy the many perks of motoring and maximize convenient financial schemes and banking services available at the same time.
“Offered through the One Hyundai Club, the first-ever distributor-based car loyalty program in the country, the Hyundai MasterCard entitles our customers the advantage to enjoy exclusive deals and premiums from both financial and automotive worlds, with its wide array of privileges that truly cater to the leisure, travel, and lifestyle needs of affluent motorists,” said Ms. Fe Perez-Agudo, President and Chief Executive Officer of HARI, in an interview during the event. “Indeed, it affords Hyundai MasterCard holders no less than a one-of-a-kind motoring experience through globally-primed rewards and exclusive financial advantages that will set them apart from the ordinary,” reinforced Ms. Agudo.
During the One Hyundai VIP Night, Ms. Agudo and Mr. Moncupa, Jr., EastWest Bank’s President and CEO, together with Mr. Edward Go, HARI Chairman, and Ms. Jacqueline Fernandez, Executive Vice President and Head for Consumer Lending Cluster, led the audience to a momentous wine toasting ceremony, symbolic of the two companies’ all-winning partnership and impassioned drive to lead the Filipino community to new heights through innovative products and excellent customer service.
A handsome display of Hyundai Sonatas also added prestige to the event, while special VIP financial deals for the Sonata that evening further whetted the appetite of curious motorists wanting to drive home Hyundai’s award-winning midsize sedan.
Two of the most famous divas in the country, Kuh Ledesma and Zsa Zsa Padilla, together with their talented daughters, Isabella and Zia Quizon, respectively, also performed on stage during the event, symbolizing the unified commitment of both companies to become lifetime partners of customers and provide the best motoring lifestyle possible for Filipinos. For the grand finale, the grand ensemble of divas and their daughters sang their rendition of the One Hyundai Club theme song, echoing the passion of the One Hyundai Club – “One Hyundai. One Journey. One Family.”
