Calata Corporation is currently the best performing Initial Public Offering (IPO) in the Philippine Stock Exchange as it gained a market capitalization of P4.3B. One might ask, "who is under this successful 10-year-old company?"
Of course, there is the 31-year-old Edward Cullen look-alike, Joseph Calata who took over as the corporation's Chief Executive Officer (CEO) when he graduated from the De La Salle University with a bachelor's degree in Commerce. With the company's current market cap, Joseph Calata himself is worth P2.62B, making him the youngest billionaire in the Philippines. But indeed "no man is an island," as he is backed up with a team of professionals.
This is where the Archer and Eagles unite as Anteneans Baltazar Endriga and Jose Zaide joins Calata Corporation's board of directors. Baltazar Endriga earned his master's degree in Economics from Ateneo de Manila as well as his master's degree in Business Administration from Harvard Business School. He is a veteran in terms of handling companies as he was president of the Meridian International College of Business, Arts and Technology. He was also a board member of Miriam College Foundation and Management Association of the Philippines. He graduated as a Magna Cum Laude from the University of the East with a bachelor's degree in Commerce.
On the other hand, Jose Zaide served the country as an ambassador of the Philippines to France and a delegate to UNESCO. He was awarded the German and Austrian Grand Cross for distinguished services. He writes for Manila Bulletin under a column entitled "Below the Line" whenever he has some spare time.
Since November 2011, Benison Paul De Torres and Attorney Jose Maria Fabella served Calata Corporation as the Chief Financial Officer and Corporate Secretary, respectively. They are used to managing companies as Benison De Torres used to be an auditor of Sycip, Gorres, Velayo and Co. as well as a Financial Services Manager of Prime Outsource Corporation while Attorney Fabella is part owner of Fabella Law Office.
Top notchers of their specific fields, Jaime Laya and George Nave are also included in Calata Corporation's board of directors. Jaime Laya, who graduated as Magna Cum Laude from the University of the Philippines, ranked eighth in the 1957 CPA board exams while George Nave, a mechanical engineering graduate of Mapua Institute of Technology, placed first in the Mechanical Engineering board exams in 1971.
This team of all-star professionals clearly shows how the Calata Corporation is as successful as it is now. With them and the company's competitive strengths, who knows how far and high Calata Corporation will reach?
