Globe ambassadors in Tatler’s list of Asia’s Most Influential

Three Globe ambassadors have made it to the 2021 Asia’s Most Influential list of lifestyle and luxury magazine Tatler, recognition that reflects how members of “Team Globe of Good” from various fields are shaping the Asian region, aligned with the company’s ideals.


Tennis Grand Slam champion Alex Eala, TV personality Kim Atienza, and award-winning actor John Arcilla are part of the power roster in the inaugural list, which Tatler said “brings together the region’s most innovative changemakers, industry titans and powerful individuals who are shaping the region through positive impact.”


“We are very proud to see our ambassadors continuing to make an impact in society through their individual contributions, embodying Globe’s vision of building an admired Philippines, and creating a Globe of Good,” said Globe President and CEO Ernest Cu. 


Cu and GCash President and CEO Martha Sazon are also part of the list.


For one, tennis wonder Eala has been rising in the international scene, ending a long Philippine drought in the sport through a victory in 2020, the start of a stellar streak.  She became the first Filipina player in over a quarter of a century to bag the World Junior Tennis title at the International Tennis Federation (ITF) and participate in a Grand Slam tournament in 28 years.


After reaching the semifinals of the French Open girls' singles competition, the Rafa Nadal Academy scholar moved up to the second spot in the ITF Girls’ Junior rankings in 2020.  She won the Australian girls’ doubles event championship with Priska Madelyn Nugroho and reached the semifinals of the juniors' singles event. Last year, she won her second Grand Slam championship after dominating the French Open girls’ doubles title with Oksana Selekhmeteva.


Meanwhile, Atienza, popularly known as Kuya Kim, joined GMA Network after years of presenting the weather report and sharing trivia on newscast TV Patrol, as well as hosting several programs on ABS-CBN. Tatler feted the multi-hyphenate TV personality, also a triathlete and motorcycle enthusiast, for being one of the country’s most famous dispensers of facts and forecasts.


Before his successful career in broadcasting, Atienza was in politics and served as councilor from 1995 to 2004 in capital Manila, where his father Rep. Lito Atienza was a long-time Mayor.


Tatler also cited Arcilla for bringing old-school charisma to a new golden age of Philippine Cinema.  John was awarded Best Actor at the 78th Venice International Film Festival for his role in “On the Job: The Missing 8'' by director Erik Matti.  He also drew raves for his epic portrayal of revolutionary Filipino general Antonio Luna in the titular film “Heneral Luna.”


Personalities in Asia’s Most Influential list were chosen by the Tatler Asia editorial board for pushing for positive developments in Asia in the areas of politics, journalism, arts, media, sports, and business.


The list was launched on December 6, 2021, selecting 300 influential individuals from the Philippines, Hong Kong, Singapore, Malaysia, Taiwan, and Indonesia.


Globe strongly supports the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals, specifically UN SDG No. 9, which aims to build resilient infrastructure, promote inclusive and sustainable industrialization, and foster innovation. It is committed to upholding the United Nations Global Compact principles and contributing to 10 UN SDGs.
