No one really knows how it happened, to be honest.
It makes a certain amount of sense, though: Corporations are considered to be individuals in the eyes of the law, and as they are human fabrications, sooner or later an Ethereal based on one would crop up. I mean, look at the extent to which Microsoft is personified, and with all the cyberpunk literature on Megacorps, it was bound to happen.
Still, nobody is sure exactly how Pendrathias managed to possess a corporation. He just knows it happened one day. There he was, minding his own business - well, the business of the Fortune 500 exec he was currently inhabiting, actually - and he started thinking along the above lines. Well, Kyriotates are known for their intrepidity, and Pendrathias (Pender to his friends) thought it would be goofy, harmless to fun to try and inhabit the exec's corporation.
Next thing Pender knew, he was the Corporation.
Needless to say, it shocked him. Enough to make him bounce out of the corporation, immediately ascended to his heart and make a beeline to Marc's office. By the time his Archangel managed to fit the Domination into his schedule, Pender had managed to collect himself enough to give a rational accounting of what happened. Naturally, Marc wanted a demonstration, so he had Pender try to inhabit one of the many holding companies used to finance Heavenly operations on the corporeal.
Needless to say, Marc was shocked when Pender was able to tell him, in exacting detail, the performance of every division in the company, including stock prices on the NASDAQ, Wall Street and Nikkei indices. Especially the corporate black ops programs.
Becoming Worded was pretty much a formality after that.
Elohim and other celestials of intellectual bent have theorized that Pender somehow manifested the ability to possess Ethereal constructs based upon corporations; i.e. a business is incorporated, becoming an individual at least in theory, and the subsequent personification of said corporation turns it into an ethereal, which Pender is then able to possess. At the behest of Blandine Pender has attempted to posses 'typical' ethereals, but has had no success in the matter. Right now, the consensus seems to be that Pendrathias was in the right place at the right time when his Kyrio nature and the Word of Trade somehow intersected with ineffability.
Pender really doesn't care to know how it works; he's just thrilled that it does. Marc currently uses him in intelligence and counter-intelligence operations, and continues to help the Domination grow. Maybe one day, with time and experience, Pender will be able to grant his ability to possess corporations to angels serving him.
And that's a divided Marc intends to profit from.
Angel of Corporations: Pender can inhabit a corporation. Of course, he really can't do anything as a corp: Monty Python aside, business ventures don't leave their addresses and go cruising about town. However, because of their Dissonance conditions, Kyrios have gotten very good about determining the health and welfare of their hosts, and Pender is no exception. Once inside a corporation, Pender knows what its current financial situation is and has access to all information that is held by CEOs, CFOs, CIOs, the President of the Board of Directors, etc. Note that this information is not immediately known: Pender has to look for it. But if it affects the corporation, then the legal entity knows about it, and therefore Pender can find out.
As a rule of thumb, assume all corporations have 5 Forces. Add a Force for each additional continent in which the corporation has branches; Japan counts as a continent in this instance. Add an additional Force if the corporation can be considered a monopoly.
