After nine years of service, Ernesto "Ton" Areopagita has left the Informatics team of Asian Development Bank (ADB) . I must say that nine years in Informatics is an achievement itself. I cannot imagine staying in a division or a work area for nine years. I will get bored to death with a constant like that.
I would think that after nine years at ADB as an I.T. Training Consultant, he has gotten very comfortable with the work environment and felt the need for change. I see that it is a job that is hard to leave with a great environment that ADB offers.
It was a great gesture by BPHR - Learning & Development team to have a farewell party, held last July 27, even though it is not a custom in ADB to have a farewell party for consultants. It goes to show how they appreciate the service he has rendered to BPHR.
Once again Ton, I wish you all the best to your career change and thanks for being instrumental in getting me in ADB as a consultant.
