Our Company


Accepting the challenge of a new frontier in human resource development, Ascend International Services Inc. (Ascend) was organized as early as 1979.

Overseas employment then as a new and untapped employment horizon, saw the active deployment of skilled and semi-skilled OFWs in the fields of construction and engineering, medical and domestic services in various countries such as the United States of America, the Middle East and in Southeast Asia.

In 1996, Ascend came under a new management, composed mainly by the present stakeholders who painstakingly honed their expertise by hands-on management business acumen, earning the POEA’s Outstanding Performer Award in 1986.

To date, Ascend has gone a long way and has become a by-word in the industry. The deployment of competent, reliable, flexible and trustworthy OFWs in various countries is its main motivation.

It does not rest on its laurels but rather, it continues to carve its rightful place in overseas employment and development of new markets while at the same time maintaining satisfied foreign counter-parts and employers.

Our main office is conveniently located in Ermita, Manila, proximate to the Department of Foreign Affairs and the Department of Labor and Employment Administration, the twin government agencies of the Philippines playing a pivotal role in overseas employment and likewise to the Ninoy Aquino International Airport.

At the Helm


Manning the day to day affairs of Ascend since 1986 is President Ms. Amor C. Desepeda.

A graduate of Bachelor of Science in Nursing at the M.V. Gallego Foundation College in Cabanatuan City in 1976, Ms. Amor, as she is fondly called by her staff and colleagues, had previous stints in her nursing career as company nurse for ten (10) years at the National Irigation Administration. Though seemingly far-fetched from overseas employment, her nursing background at the prime entry and exit point of the country, proved to be valuable in inestimable pecuniary measures in caring for Ascend’s clients as patients would.

Rising from the ranks as Ascend’s staff in 1986, she soon became its Operations Manager under the old management. As a fitting recognition of her invaluable service and dedication to her work, she became the company’s first President under the new management in 1996 and continues to hold the position until this day.

Today, President Amor packs a full twenty two (22) solid years of experience in the fields of overseas employment.

Modest and soft spoken, she confidently and familiarly steers the company both in sunny and stormy weather under God’s able and mighty hand.
