Mary Jane’s name is a fixture in any conversation about Filipino workplace excellence in the UAE. Through her exemplary hard work and discipline, she has carved a reputation as a true benchmark of what Filipinos can accomplish abroad, an an icon of female empowerment.

She is not only a key figure in the Middle East business community and a global force for women empowerment but Mary Jane has gained through 25 years of experience in quality assurance, certification and analytical laboratory services. She bagged various industry awards for her outstanding body of work:  CEO of The Year award at the World Water Leadership Congress, the World Women Leadership Achievement Award at the Women Leadership Congress in India, Lifetime Achievement Award at the Golden Globe Tigers in Kuala Lumpur, Quality Leadership Award at the Global Awards for Excellence in Quality Management and Leadership, and the distinction of being included amongst Dubai’s  100 Global Sustainable CEO’s.

She would love to be known for her humility regardless of what she has achieved in life. As she quoted, “I want my worth to be measured by the values I have added and influenced in the life of the people I inspire every day in my life.”
