Dr. Tan is the chairman and CEO of Megaworld, one of the Philippines’ largest real estate developers and the country’s leader in business process outsourcing (BPO) office developments.
He becomes the first Filipino tycoon to take part in the Ice Bucket Challenge phenomenon that aims to spread ALS awareness around the world.
As a tradition to the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge, Dr. Tan nominates three personalities from the business community to do the same:
- Dr. Steven DeKrey, president of Asian Institute of Management
- Mr. Manolito Tayag, country head of Accenture Philippines
- Kenneth Yang, president of Golden Arches Development Corporation (McDonald’s Philippines).
Dr. Steven DeKrey and Kenneth Yang have already donated to the cause.
