Rolando Hortaleza - Second wind

Food for thought in October-November Asian Dragon

On April 14 of this year, Dr. Rolando Bonifacio Hortaleza, M.D. made a surprising announcement: that he had agreed to sell his family’s majority interest in publicly listed Splash Corporation, which he and his wife had founded in 1985, to Wipro Consumer Corporation (WCC) of Bangalore, India for “P9 to 11 billion.”

It was definitely a lucrative outcome for Hortaleza, but a surprising one, for industry watchers who had seen his entrepreneurial passion and dedication to nurturing and growing his brainchild brands. It was almost a shock to see him let go of the reins.

Asian Dragon met with Dr. Hortaleza at this remarkable crossroads in his life.
