Miguel V. Tan, serial entrepreneur and founding CEO of MVT Group of Companies—an investment portfolio with diverse interests in bar and restaurants, construction, fitness gyms, private security, real estate, and wealth and securities management—among business and lifestyle magazine Rising Tigers: Nation Builders’ Top 50 Rising Tigers in the Asia Pacific.

This latest publication will feature the best and the brightest in the Philippines and Southeast Asia who never fail to balance commitment to growth with corporate social responsibility, even during the most trying times.

“Asia Leaders Awards Presents the Top 50 Rising Tigers in the Asia Pacific to motivate us all that, in spite of the challenges, we will emerge triumphant. These are the top leaders with the very new vision of the world now,” explained ALA Board Member Robert Laurel Yupangco, grandson of former President Jose P. Laurel and owner of 36 businesses worldwide.

Establishing Mutual Trust for Collective Success

Miguel V. Tan, 25, is already the quintessential leader of the future, rising above and beyond the limitations of his age and of the pandemic as a hands-on leader to bring his diverse interests and group of companies to a whole new level of success.

“I had to go through a steep learning curve, not being architect or engineer. The key here is admitting to your own 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,” Tan shared.

Transforming Fasclad from Startup to Innovator

In a mere seven years, he transformed Fasclad Incorporated from a startup doing residential door-and-window glass installation to a thriving conglomerate designing and engineering the aluminum-and-glass-clad facades for the country’s skyscrapers.

“With the trend toward seamless glass facades in BGC, we need to quickly transition to keep up with changing times, Tan shared. Thus, Fasclad came about as a portmanteau of “fast,” “façade,” and “cladding.”

Only 18 years old and studying at Xavier High School, he’d learn glass-cladding with his father and their team in China, Hong Kong, and Singapore.

Tan, a Management graduate of the University of Asia and the Pacific, is also an avid art collector.

Managing a Diverse Group of Interests

The MVT Group of Companies, started in 2014, is the mother company and primary holding of Tan’s myriad interests: 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 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,” shared Tan.
