Some Biographical Background:
Ed has come a long way from his humble beginnings doing odd jobs beginning 1989 as bus boy, dish washer, waiter, production assistant, sidewalk vendor and water purifier salesman.
Breaks started coming when he joined Philippine Seven Corporation (7-Eleven) in 1991 as a store clerk assigned to 7-Eleven Boni Branch. He moved to the Human Resources Department as a Training Assistant after serving the store for three years. This move introduced Ed to computers which he had a chance to use for the first time in 1994 and eventually come to be very passionate with. He also came at a time when the only training conducted by HR was New Employee Training and Store Operations Training for Team Leads and Supervisors. Other Courses Like Supervisory Training was outsourced to Training Consultants. After sitting in training conducted by Consultants, Ed thought that it would be a great opportunity to hone his skills if he will be allowed to design and conduct similar programs. He is very thankful to his Boss, Paz De Vera for her confidence in giving a relatively inexperienced trainer like Ed the chance to design and conduct a Basic Supervisory Course together with the other trainers. That gave Ed the courage to pursue self development in this field by taking trainer's training courses and reading heavily on leadership and training related topics which gave him the additional skills to design new courses as Team Leadership, Customer Service and Team building Workshops
When Paz De Vera moved up to become PSC's HRD Manager, Ed took over as Head of Training. After 9 years of experience with PSC, Ed moved to SPI Technologies in 1999 as Head of Training. SPI is one of the biggest BPO companies in the Philippines. The move allowed Ed to lead a bigger Training team, enhanced his existing designs and created new training programs. At SPI, he led a a good number of team building initiatives to help SPI's several business units and thousands of employees. He conducted a number of courses in Basic Supervision, Leadership, Coaching, Performance Management, Values Clarification, Trainer's Training and Presentation Skills Enhancement. He also started accepting weekend training/team building works during that time. Most of Ed's clients were SMEs with the exception of Trend Micro which is one of the first international companies that engaged his services.
His former boss Madeline Elba Gacutan who was then HR Director of PET Plans invited Ed to a breakfast meeting in year 2000 which lead to him working as HR Manager for PET Plan's subsidiary companies Ingenium Technology, PETNET Western Union and AV Ocampo Group. There, Ed learned how to manage a shared service HR Department for three SME's. That experience helped Ed prepare for what's ahead when he moved to Athena E-Services, a BPO Data Processing company where he worked as HR Director for several sister companies Athena E-Services, E-Commsite Solutions, an IT company and Mediscribe, a medical transcription company. He worked in Athena E-Services from 2002 to 2006.
In 2006, Ed's reputation in the consulting arena started to get noticed. He decided to concentrate on freelance consulting. This paved the way for him to serve more organizations in various HR-related undertakings from training to general HR consulting.
in 2007, Ed established ExeQserve Corporation, an HR Consulting company in partnership with a number of friends. Today ExeQserve is serving companies in various industries with their, recruitment, training and other HR needs. CheQ Systems, a software testing company, outsourced their entire HR operations to ExeQserve.

Ed grew up and lived most of his young life in Barangay Commonwealth near the Payatas dumpsite, one of the biggest concentrations of informal settlers in the country. His experience in dealing with all sorts of people from all walks of life and the richness of his experience growing up in an urban poor area and engaging with the high-and-mighties of the corporate world gives him a very broad view and deeper understanding of both social extremes. His experiences helps him communicate with his audience in the language that they understand, whichever part of the social extremes they belong to.
