Establishing Mutual Trust for Collective Success
Miguel V Tan, 25, is already the quintessential future leader, rising above and beyond the limitations of his age and the pandemic as a hands-on leader to propel his diverse interests and group of companies to new heights of success.
“I had to go through a steep learning curve, not being an architect or engineer. The key here is admitting to your people that you don’t know everything, you need to teach me how to do things better, to earn my people’s trust and establish mutual respect.”
Transforming Fasclad from Startup to Innovator
He transformed Fasclad Incorporated from a startup doing residential door-and-window glass installation to a thriving conglomerate designing and engineering aluminum-and-glass-clad facades for the country’s skyscrapers in just seven years.
“With the trend toward seamless glass facades in BGC, we need to quickly transition to keep up with changing times.”
Thus, Fasclad came about as a portmanteau of “fast,” “façade,” and “cladding.”
He was only 18 years old and a student at Xavier High School when he traveled to China, Hong Kong, and Singapore to learn glass-cladding with his father and their team.
Tan, a University of Asia and the Pacific Management graduate is also an avid art collector.
Managing a Diverse Group of Interests
The MVT Group of Companies, founded in 2014, is Tan’s mother company and primary holding of the following companies: Anytime Fitness PH, Black Ocelot Security Corporation, Boss Chicken, Fasclad Incorporated, Gotogo Franchises, Mosaic Realty and Development Holdings, Moonshine PH, Studio 300 Bowling, and Vanguard AI Corporation.
“We’ve worked for hand in hand with local government units as well as government agencies to contribute to the COVID-19 effort. For this, we’ve donated P1.5 million worth of food packs and personal protective equipment for our tireless frontliners.”
