Thrived and Adapted
Before joining EBCI, she worked as a Blogger, Photographer, Correspondent, Editorial Assistant, Distribution Analyst, Innovation Consultant, and CSR consultant for a variety of local and international companies. Despite being the privileged daughter of a business magnate, Dioceldo Sy, Founder and CEO of EBCI and also known as “The Father of Filipino Cosmetics,” chose to experience all of this.
Denice eventually joined his father’s company in 2014, starting as a Key Accounts Supervisor and working her way up to her current position of CSMO.
Her management and marketing style was put to test for EBCI was not spared from the economic distraught caused by COVID-19. But Ms. Denice Sy Munez and her team were quick to adapt. They successfully launched four new brands amidst the pandemic to augment declining sales from the company’s core mass color cosmetics business. The brands they launched, namely Hello Glow, Ever Organics, Spotlight Cosmetics, and Hyaloo helped EBCI sustain its operations.
Chief Marketer with a Heart
During the hard lockdown on the early part of the pandemic, EBCI was one of the few companies that continuously gave full salaries to their employees despite the halt in their business operations. Such a selfless act of sacrifice for the business owners. But they did it.
“It’s the heart to give back to the people who helped bring the company where it is now. That’s one of the reasons why I stayed on board.”
Ms. Sy Munez said.
A wife, mother, and daughter, but also the chief marketer of EBCI, Denice effectively manages her time to put balance in between.

EBCI has also steadily increased its reach by opening over 1,000 new doors with key trade partners for all of its brands.
