Anton Ortigas highlights Curiosity and Kindness as his success secrets




Entrepreneur and coffee lover, Anton Ortigas, attributes his success to being curious and kind

Anton Ortigas is an entrepreneur based out of Manila, Philippines. The travel enthusiast currently works with Cotecna Elite Philippines, Inc., a subsidiary of Cotecna SA out of Geneva. The business is an independent third-party inspection, certification, and testing company of global repute. Over the years, Anton has demonstrated his passion for excellence, a characteristic that has helped him grow as an entrepreneur and a professional. He has also attributed his success story to his kindness and curiosity.

Curiosity and Kindness have always been my secret. One of the best pieces of advice I got from my mother was to always be as curious as a child and be kind to others. I am always reading and eager to learn new things. Learning by being curios has equipped me with the necessary tools for growth and success. Treating people the same way I want to be treated gives me the chance to work with people who give me respect. It is easy for me to instill in our employees our goals and objectives because by they see I lead by example and treat others with respect,” Anton Ortigas said when he was asked about his secret to success.

Anton is currently one of the youngest Country Managers in the industry and also doubles as the Director of Cotecna Elite Philippines, Inc. The 38-year-old has been able to stand out in almost every venture he undertakes, which ultimately helped him to secure his current position at Cotecna Elite Philippines.

I believe that I was given the confidence to lead our Philippine operations because of my previous track record as an Entrepreneur. I started working with Cotecna in 2008 as a subcontractor and in 2013 we formalized our relationship by joining forces and starting Cotecna Elite Philippines. With my leadership, what was once a company focused on the Oil and Gas Industry is now a more diverse organization catering to different sectors, like the Agriculture, Energy, Minerals, Hospitality, Certification, and Training industries,” said Anton Ortigas.

As a lover of photography, Anton founded his company, Anton Ortigas Photography, where he delivers breathtaking shots. He is also the owner of two coffee businesses in the Philippines, a project he describes as his way of giving back to the community.
