  • 1st Filipino to win the Information and Communications Technology Entrepreneur Award (2003)

"As more companies discover the many benefits of doing business in the Philippines, it's going to be hard to justify not investing here. But we shouldn't take that for granted. We have many competitors, and many more countries are determined to become competitors. This means we must continuously enhance our value proposition, communicate it well, and deliver on those promises."
