Embiggen Founding CEO & Managing Partner Rolan Marco Garcia was recognized as part of the Circle of Excellence in 2 award categories of the 2022 Asia CEO Awards.
Garcia is part of the Circle of Excellence of the Young Leader of the Year and Entrepreneur of the Year categories. The Circle of Excellence is a shortlist of finalists vying for the top spot in each award category.
“More than 400 nominations were received from the nation’s most important organizations and leaders. The Circle of Excellence awardees are an impressive group who are making gigantic contributions to the nation’s development,” wrote Asia CEO Awards Chairman Richard Mills.
“These two recognitions are for all of us here at the Embiggen Group. As with any recognition, the real award is in the journey we’re in and the work that we do,” said Garcia.
“This is just a testament to the value we give to the clients we help. We’ll keep working hard to build innovation-led growth in emerging markets, as well as to solve the world’s most challenging problems through corporate venturing,” added Garcia.
Young Leader of the Year award finalists were selected for leading their companies to grow and succeed through their direct management and leadership.
Candidates for the Entrepreneur of the Year award were chosen for building a business that provides pioneering services and products, and new employment opportunities for Filipinos.
Embiggen Founding Partner & Board Member Earl Valencia is also part of the Circle of Excellence of the Entrepreneur of the Year category as the co-founder and Chief Business Owner of Plentina, a fintech startup working to improve financial wellness in emerging markets.
