Angkas is in the running for the “Service Excellence Company” category, and Tham in the “Expat Executive of the Year” category.

The Asia CEO Awards honors companies, entrepreneurs, and executives that have both excelled, and have made a significant positive impact on society.

Primarily a motorcycle taxi-hailing service, Angkas rode out the COVID-19 pandemic and the many transport restrictions that were imposed through a combination of grit and agility.

Angkas became the mobility partner of the Philippine Red Cross, delivering test kits door to door, and even transporting samples to labs. As transport restrictions eased, Angkas offered free rides to health workers.

“Public service not only for our customers, our biker-partners, and their families but for the whole nation has always been an integral part of Angkas’ DNA,” said Angkas CEO George Royeca.

“This company was established first and foremost as a solution to Metro Manila traffic, a very real problem many Filipinos face daily, that has economic consequences on a national level,” he added.

As Angkas’ founder, Tham believed that Filipinos could be safe and disciplined bikers given the proper training and motivation.

Her belief and investment in Filipinos have resulted in a safety record of 99.997% for Angkas, after literally millions of bookings in seven years of operation.

Angkas provides not only a safe, and reliable solution to epic traffic for Filipino commuters daily but also a viable and dignified livelihood to its nearly 23,000 biker partners.

“I know I speak for all of us at Angkas when I say that we are honored by this distinction. Whether or not we win, it is an affirmation for us, and it will inspire us to find more ways to be of service to Filipinos in the days and years to come,” Tham said.

The announcement of the winners of the 13th Asia CEO Awards will be on Tuesday, Oct 11 at 5 p.m., at the Manila Marriott Grand Ballroom.
