He has used these insights to reshape online customer service practices on two continents. In 2010, Tony opened the first reputation management firm in the Philippines, which was bought out by GeiserMaclang Marketing Communications the following year.
While heading the digital team there, he designed a line of signature social media marketing products that has been used by Ayala Land Corporation, Krispy Kreme, Alaxan, and PSBank, among others.
