Bernardo Chua is a Filipino businessman who has made his mark in the direct selling industry. He was born and raised in the Philippines along with his 14 siblings. His family owned a garment manufacturing plant and he began his career working there as a purchasing manager. He felt pressured to work there as all of his brothers and sisters did. However, he eventually gave in to his own desire to venture out and took a job as a manager of a travel agency. See more on twitter for more information.
He was very successful as a manager. He grew the travel agency into one that was sending people on vacations across Southeast Asia. Another thing that benefited him was that he was known to have a lot of knowledge about traditional Asian medicines since his parents taught it to him. His skill as a manager and his knowledge led to Gano Excel recruiting him. Gano Excel Philippines is a company that sold beverages with the added ingredient of Ganoderma Lucidum, an herb that has been used in traditional Asian medicine for centuries. Bernardo Chua was hired to promote their products.
When Gano Excel decided to expand into North America, he was tapped to be the president of Gano Excel USA. He led this operation from 2003 to 2008. In 2008, he decided to go into business for himself. He founded Organo Gold outside of Vancouver, BC. This company uses direct marketing to sell its Ganoderma Lucidum-infused beverages and supplements.
His company has been ranked as one of the largest direct selling firms in the world by Direct Selling News. He has distributors in over 35 countries and on every inhabited continent. He has earned multiple accolades and awards over the years for his business acumen. This includes the Dangal Bayan Award for Business and Industry that he was honored to receive in 2014.
