About Manny O.

Chairman and Founder of the Manny O. Group, an Ernst & Young Entrepreneur of the Year finalist in 2013, he is the eldest of 11 siblings. Raised to be in business since he was a teenager, he struck out on his own at 14 by starting a bakery business.

A Business Management major from the University of San Carlos Cebu, he was in the furniture manufacturing and export business for many years – founded Woodwares International in 1974 and Philippine Baskets Corporation in 1979.

His involvement in the tourism industry began in the early 90s when he co-founded Waterfront Philippines with a Malaysian businessman. He shortly divested from this due to a conflict with his spiritual convictions vis-a-vis the casino/gaming industry.

He then embarked on a hotel project with the Hilton Group PLC UK to develop the Hilton Cebu Resort & Spa. After six years, Mövenpick Hotel and Resorts Management AG was elected as the property’s new hotel operator in 2011.
