Arthur Tugade of Perry’s Group, Ferdie Marañon of Sagrex Corporation, Alice Eduardo of Sta. Elena Construction and Development Corporation, Laura Verallo De Bertotto of VMV Hypoallergenics, and Esther and Gaspar Vibal of Vibal Publishing Group.
Already on its fifth year, the MVP Bossing Awards is an annual event considered as the biggest search for Filipino entrepreneurs who embody the spirit of perseverance and who have achieved significant success in their businesses through technology. The event is also done in line with PLDT SME Nation’s objective of promoting Filipino SMEs and igniting the entrepreneurial spirit of our nation.
“This is what the MVP Bossing Awards is all about - to recognize, honor and celebrate our very best examples of the Filipino Entrepreneur. We hope these awards will serve as a continuing inspiration towards more Filipino Bossings and drive many of our businessmen and women to adopt their winning ways and values, and innovative approaches to success,” said PLDT Executive Vice President and ePLDT President and CEO Eric R.
