Here's a background on Paulo M. Tibig:
He is the President and CEO of leading logistics company, Vcargo Worldwide. With its roots in the marketing services industry, Paulo M. Tibig led Vcargo Worldwide to evolve into an expanding service that is focused on providing customers with guaranteed shipping, delivery and distribution solutions for all kinds of local and international shipping requirements.
Under Paulo’s leadership, Vcargo was named as one of the top 6 companies in the maiden launch of the ASEAN Business Awards in the Philippines. Paulo was named as the ASEAN Young Entrepreneur awardee and is set to represent the country along with 5 notable business movers in the regional ASEAN Business Awards on November 2014.
Vcargo Worldwide is included in the top 4,000 companies in the Philippines; recognized by the Civil Aeronautics Board as one of the top airfreight forwarders in the country and consistently named as one of the top ten shippers of Cebu Pacific Cargo for four consecutive years.
The company made its mark in the industry by being the first to offer Logistics Marketing -- a complete set of logistical solutions to the marketing, advertising and promotions industry. The company now capitalizes on its five strong and dedicated service pillars: Courier, Freight, Logistics, Food Logistics and Logistics Marketing and operates with the same value of service excellence since its inception 15 years ago.
Born and raised in Bataan, Paulo grew up in an entrepreneurial environment cultivated by his hardworking parents. When he was young, Paulo’s father chose to leave his work abroad as an OFW. His father ventured in a small business selling oil in retail while his mother earned a living as a teacher in their town of Balanga. At an early age, Paulo and his siblings was raised to value entrepreneurship as the family’s means of sustenance, survival, and success. This mind set became one of the strongest foundations of his advocacy to promote entrepreneurship in the country. Paulo worked his way up the ladder of entrepreneurship and success. A graduate of B.S. Airline Business Administration, he was a working student taking on not-so-popular jobs like utility, messenger and delivery man from his freshman year up to his senior year in college. He started several enterprises like t-shirt trading, nata de coco production, handmade paper production and laundry business before he was able to strike the proverbial “pot of gold” in the logistics business. At present, he is also engaged in other business enterprises: an energy company and a transport service company. Over the years, his business savvy and constant drive for excellence pave the way for another mission --- To impart his life lessons to other people through professional speaking. Instead of keeping the lesson to himself, Paulo chose to impart his knowledge and inspire others to become champion entrepreneurs as a motivational speaker for corporate, local government units and private organizations. His entrepreneurial advocacy eventually earned him the monicker, “EntrepChamp.” It evolved into a concept, with CHAMP serving as an acronym aiding him in his teachings. For Paulo, Commitment, Hard work, Attitude, Motivation, and Prayer (C.H.A.M.P) are the things that have worked and continue to work for him in life and in entrepreneurship. His best-selling book, “The Strategies of a Champion Entrepreneur” marked his personal commitment to entrepreneurship as an advocacy. The book gives the reader 10 guidelines for his entrepreneurial journey towards success. The book presents experiential, engaging, and educational perspectives on business for aspiring, starting, and existing entrepreneurs.
To this very day, Paulo continues to become a champion of his own organization and enable his team at Vcargo Worldwide to become champions in their own respective departments; and through his public speaking engagements, both local and abroad, his journey has continuously inspired more and more people to pursue entrepreneurship not just alternative, but a life-changing commitment.
His achievements have earned him notable recognitions from various award-giving bodies. In 2005, Paulo was awarded as one of the TOP TEN ENTREPRENEURS by Entrepreneur Philippines and the 2007 TEENPRENEUR CHALLENGE WINNING MENTOR of Entrepreneur School of Asia. He is also a finalist for 2008 NOKIA MOBILE ENTREPRENEURS AWARDS.
This year, he holds the honour of being the first recipient of the Young Entrepreneur Award from the ASEAN Business Awards – Philippines.
In his native town, Paulo was recognized as one of Balanga’s City “Dangal Balangueño”- a recognition for outstanding achievers who made mark in entrepreneurship in 2011 and an Outstanding Alumni of Bataan National High School.
Early this year, PATTS College Aeronautics named him as an Outstanding Alumni. Paulo is also actively engaged in a number of government and private organizations so that he may able to extend his advocacy and help more Filipino SMEs (Small & Medium Enterprise) by institutionalizing programs and pushing them forward by creating strategic platforms that will enable them to conduct their businesses successfully.
From 2009 to 2011, Paulo served as the President of the Association of Filipino Franchisers (AFFI) and Bataan Chamber of Commerce (BACII).
He is currently serving as the Director of the Freeport Area of Bataan, Board of Regent of Bataan Peninsula State University and an honorary member of the Young Entrepreneurs Society (Worldwide).
The various accolades and recognition he has received through the years is a testament to how far he has worked to push the entrepreneurial advocacy into new heights in the Philippines.
