We are excited to announce that Love Panda has brought onboard our new business advisor for the Phillipines! Meet Emmanuel Bonoan, Vice Chairman and COO of KPMG in the Philippines.
Mr. Bonoan is the Vice Chairman and Chief Operating of KPMG R.G. Manabat & Co., the Philippine member firm of KPMG International. He is a former Undersecretary of the Philippine Department of Finance and was awarded in 2004 the prestigious Ten Outstanding Young Men (TOYM) in the category of Public Service.
Presently, Mr. Bonoan advises large multinational companies and trade organizations. He has also worked with industry associations such as the Bankers Association of the Philippines and the Philippine Association of Multinational and Regional Operating Headquarters.
We were very blessed to be introduced to Mr. Bonoan through one of our founders MBA classmate. He was immediately sold on the vision and goals of Love Panda. In fact, he himself wanted to learn Chinese as he sees the need for professionals to speak good Chinese in order to deal with the increasing number of Chinese clients and investors in Philippines. He also sees the need for young children to start learning Chinese early on so that by the time they enter the workforce, they will have the necessary skills for brighter career prospects.
Tapping into Mr. Bonoan's wide business network and experience, Love Panda aims to bring faster and better way to learn Chinese to the Philippines.
