Since her high school days, Annaliza was driven to be a successful entrepreneur and chose to learn from the international corporate world, working with companies in the Philippines, Singapore, and Bangladesh that manufacture well-known international brands – with the intention of eventually owning her own business.
Once she embarked on her entrepreneurship, in a span of 10 years, Annaliza was able to expand her company branded as AMEU (American/European) garments into more than 20 outlets all over the Philippines. In the process, Annaliza became an expert in logistics, finance, and administration – essential aspects of building a successful company.
Annaliza is the brains behind the business of CGF.
Celina has, for more than 30 years, successfully built her career in sales in the field of Ophthalmology and is known by most in the field as “Mother” since the time she was working with Alcon Philippines. Celina’s vigor remained undiminished even up to the point when she retired from the industry in 2014. Many in the industry have fond thoughts of “Mother” and the feeling is mutual.
After four years away from the industry, she could not resist the opportunity to promote one of the best intraocular lenses (IOLs) in the world manufactured by Rayner UK, this time as a pioneer of CGF.
When you think of “Mother”, one thinks of elegance and warmth in relationships.
