The Filipina Women’s Network (FWN) awarded MFT Group of Companies CEO Mica F. Tan as among the Most Influential Filipina Woman in the World. She joins a roster of women leaders who will receive their award during the organization’s #FWNSummit2019 to be held from October 28 to November 2 in Paris, France.
Tan was recognized by FWN as an emerging leader of her generation. Inspired by her family’s entrepreneurial mindset, she is one of the youngest Filipina who is making a mark by leading MFT Group of Companies, a private equity group that restructures the corporate blueprints of family legacy businesses.
“It has always been my dream to lead a new breed of enterprising individuals; those who are able to see smart investment opportunities that may bring brands to the global platform. And I feel honored to have been recognized by FWN as an emerging leader in this field,” said Tan.
“This award pushes me further to increase our company’s business footprint by becoming the most recognized strategic business partner of local and global businesses,” she added.
Since its establishment, MFT Group has significantly grown and expanded its investment and operational teams to over 9 countries and 18 cities worldwide.
The Filipina Women’s Network recognizes women of Philippine ancestry who are changing the face of leadership in the global workplace, having reached status for outstanding work in their respective fields and are recognized for their contributions to society, female mentorship, and legacy. Tan was selected from an outstanding field of nominees from around the world.
For this award, Tan was nominated by the Global FWN President Georgitta “Beng” Pimentel Puyat, who is the chairman of Philippine Orchard Corporation. Puyat was also a 2017 Global FWN100 Awardee.
The FWN100 Award was launched in the United States in 2006 and expanded its search globally in 2013.
