Happy 110th at The Gallery, Ayala
It’s been twice that I was invited to the events of Cebu Chamber of Commerce and Industry. Not because I am a priest/missionary or I am known to them, but because they sent an invitation to our station DYRF to cover the event. For twice already, the station was also faithful in covering the events in the business industry in the Queen City of the South.
Last February 21, the CCCI had their celebration of Centennial + 10 anniversary at the Gallery of Ayala Center Cebu. The big names in Cebu business industry were there. It was also graced by the presence of the past presidents of the CCCI and their partners.
One of the highlights of the celebration was the awarding of The Outstanding Business Young Leaders (TOBYL). Here they are:
Edward Vincent Onglatco
Hyundai Cebu Group
From 2007 to 2009, the Hyundai Cebu was awarded as the Philippines’ Dealer of the Year and was the Asia-Pacific Dealer of the Year in 2007 and 2009. Thus, Hyundai Cebu Group is counted among the 300 dealers in the region.
Vito Angelo D. Selma
Stonesets International Inc.
Vito comes from the family that has been a major player in the furniture industry for nearly three decades. I love his furniture designs! It was all over the Gallery of Ayala. I will blog about his designs in my next post. You should watch out for it.
Enrilen Joy T. Benedicto
Enrison Land Inc.
Enrison Land Incorporated is a new dynamic resort group based in Cebu and they are now rapidly expanding in Visayas region, especially in Bohol. I wonder how is she related to Ambassador Francisco Benedicto (former CCCI President) who I met through Fr. Bobby Ebisa, SVD few days ago in one lunch.
Christian T. Paro-an
RC Goldline Saleshop Corporation
RC Goldline Saleshop Corporation is one of the innovative and leading wholesale and retailers of latest gadgets and accessories with gold service and trusted name in the telecommunication industry for the past 16 years. Christian believes that the principle of active citizenship would help our society and one’s self to become better.
Jason S. Yap
NUTECH started with 5 employees and now one of the most-sought in terms of providing I.T and security products in city. Kung gusto mong magpakabit ng CCTV, NUTECH is “the one”! I like his mantra: “A happy person is a happy family member. A happy family member is a happy citizen of the country. A happy citizen of the country is a happy world.” Nakupo, wala pa pala kaming CCTV sa aming radio station!
Katherine K. Cheng
Baker Bob and Kates Bakery Products, Inc.
Believe it or not, this company grew from 1 employee to eventually 10 outlets. It’s value proposition is “delicious, fresh products within a modern retail store concept.” Saan kaya ang branch niya dito sa Cebu?
I highly salute these outstanding business young leaders for their contribution to the growing Cebooom industry. Their efforts are worth following. To these young leaders, always keep your feet on the ground and know at all times who you are in the Lord. You are not defined by your bank accounts or by how many plaques and certificates you received. Your ups and downs are invitations for you to share your testimony with others about the great things the Lord has done in your business. The Almighty too, wants you to be fine examples of His light and love. Take delight in the Lord, and He will give you the desires of your heart. (Psalm 37:4)
