Most Influential Filipinos in the Gulf: Jovy Tuano – The Consummate Businessman
“Discover your own talent and enterprise. Discern your God-given mission in life by connecting the dots of your life from childhood until today. “
Founder and Former Chairman of the Philippine Business Council in Abu Dhabi Jovy Tuaňo is a true leader making an indelible mark in the community and the industry. He set up Asia Gulf Trading in early 2004 as a LLC importing Philippine contract furniture for the hospitality industry in Kuwait, Bahrain and UAE. As a CPA and licensed real estate practitioner, Jovy has also recently assumed leadership of Megaworld International for the Middle East, India and Africa as AVP for Sales. Add to that, is the launch of La Comida Express Gourmet Restaurant and a line of gourmet Filipino food which he has created with his wife, Janet, that is set to hit retail stores across the emirates this year.
More than being a businessman, he is also a community leader whose formidable leadership has allowed the PBC Abu Dhabi to go from strength to strength.
So what else is there to do for Jovy? “We are now entering the advent of the Filipino Age. Coming soon in the Middle East as my major project in 2016,” he shares. “The Filipino Age is going to be the 1st Summit of Filipino Businessmen, Entrepreneurs and Professionals with the objective of building a Filipino business ecosystem and value chain to sustain the Filipino Age and Influence in the international community.”
