After being named as Entrepreneur of the Year by the Cebu Chamber of Commerce and Industry, Cebu Landmasters, Inc. (CLI) Chief Executive Officer and CITE Chairman Jose Soberano III bagged the national award as “Industry Entrepreneur of the Year” conferred by the prestigious Ernst and Young last October 18 at the Makati Shangri-la Hotel.
Sir Joe, as we fondly call him, was chosen among 19 outstanding finalists coming from different industries nationwide picked by the Entrepreneur of the Year (EOY) Philippines in its search for the country’s most inspiring entrepreneurs.
Sir Joe was awarded for his remarkable feat in the real estate industry establishing CLI as a force to reckon with in the area of quality and affordable housing projects which later rolled out into residential estates, offices, condominiums, hotels, and mixed-use projects.
EOY Philippines was helmed by the SGV Foundation, Inc., with the participation of Department of Trade and Industry, the Philippine Business for Social Progress, and the Philippine Stock Exchange.
Cebu Landmasters, Inc, went public at the Philippine Stock Exchange in June. In an interview, Sir Joe expresses optimism in his desire to make a dent in real estate business, “What inspires me now is to build a company that can last many generations. What further fuels us as a family-oriented company is the goal to become the leading homegrown real estate developer in the Visayas and Mindanao region by 2020.”
Congratulations on your latest achievements!
