“My objective is clear:  I want to make an exceptional impact to the community. – Salvador Silva Jr. III, MBA 

He believes that what he is now is a product of a family tragedy. The untimely experience of the death of his father opened a lot of questions in his mind. But it also gave him a sense of direction. While he knows that everything is temporary, he can make things happen with urgency. “Indeed, you’ll never know when will be your last moment,” he said with sense of nostalgia.

The tragedy taught SALVADOR SILVA JR. III, MBA, that we could probably change the situation if only safety is standardized and implemented. But then, no one can change history.“Being alive today is a testament that we can do something better for our tomorrow,” he opined with conviction.

Thus, that is the core concept of Satellite GPS Tracking and Asset Management System Corporation, a company he set up. The first-local based GPS-related corporation, it is dedicated in upgrading safety and saving lives.

SALVADOR SILVA JR. III, MBA is the Chairman of the Board and Chief Executive Officer of Satellite GPS Tracking and Asset Management System Corporation. He is also the CEO and President of Philfast Global Forwarding Inc. and Complete Logistic Control Inc., and CEO and Managing Director of Total SoftTech Solutions Inc.

Buddy, as he is fondly called, is the youngest gregarious child among the seven siblings.  Born from an average family, in his young age he already love community service. His father was the man behind this fondness.

Getting over the enormous heartache of a son over the death of his father due road accident, he came up with an idea to start a business related to global positioning system.

He has never been afraid of trying on different things. After establishing logistics, forwarding and software development companies, he took a relentless drive to realize a company inspired by a tragic event in his life. He promised to never allow another son experience a trauma and heartache of a road accident.

He obtained his executive MBA modular course program at the Central Philippine University in consortium with the ABS-CBN Bayan Academy for Entrepreneurship and the Asian Institute of Management (AIM) in 2010.He started his Masters of Entrepreneurship in the U.S. under Rich Dad Coaching program.

He set up his logistic automated system which eventually opened its doors to a new business of Software Company, and from this, he developed a GPS Tracking and Asset Management Company.

A hardworking man, he is always on the go. “I don’t want to feel comfortable because there’s plenty of world out there for us and you have to keep a close eye on wind conditions to stay focus on your objective,” he enthused.

Indeed, he is a CEO with a purpose!
