RC: 12 years
JC: 2 years, 6 months
What skills do you believe would be necessary to excel in this company?
RC: I don’t believe that there are necessarily any particular skills that are needed to succeed. I believe if we simply just care; care about our performance in our job, care about our peers and the people we work with. That should be the formula to doing well.
JC: The ability to adapt to change and learn from previous mistakes.

Tell us about your most memorable experience volunteering and/ or giving back to others.
RC: In the Bay Area, I used to be heavily involved with youth basketball back in San Francisco. I loved to see children having an opportunity to enjoy themselves through sports. I would referee games for children and see the joy on their face… always made me feel good.
JC: Serving pies at the homeless shelter. I made sure they ate a lot of pie. It was fun!
If you could witness one past or future event, what would it be?
RC: When my parents got married back in the Philippines.
JC: Whenever they invent time travel so I can do it more than once.
