Meet Our Management Team

Our management team is comprised of passionate professionals who are ready to provide alternative value in the IT and HR services for multinational companies and enterprises within the Philippines. We foster a symmetry between our clients (by providing them with the best talents that their companies need) and our IT professionals (where we offer various opportunities and allow them to achieve a career at their own pace).

 

IT-SPAC is a team of diversity, with each of us bringing our skills and expertise based from our individual experiences to the table. We are a team that is founded on respect and trust, always believing in the uniqueness of everyone to make our processes productive, professional, and profitable. But more than being a management team, we are mentors for work-life balance—allowing everyone to attain success within their families, firms, finances, and faith.

Our doors are always open. Experience the IT-SPAC culture today.
