Bernardo Chua is a Canadian businessman who is originally from the Philippines. He has spent the majority of his career in the multi-level marketing industry. He started in this industry when he was still living in the Philippines. He was an executive at Gano Excel which he helped expand across Southeast Asia and then into North America.
While still working for Gano Excel he moved to California. He made this move with his family so that he could better expand Gano Excel’s products across the United States and Canada. He founded Organo Gold in 2008. This company is a beverage firm that offers products such as instant coffee and tea. Bernardo Chua differentiates his products by including Ganoderma Lucidum in them. This is a Chinese mushroom that is included in a powdered form as it is believed to have several health benefits.
Serving as the chief executive officer, Bernardo Chua has built Organo Gold into a global firm. This company’s products are sold across North America as well as in Asia and Europe. Independent contractors sell Organo Gold’s products and earn a commission on each sale. They have over one million independent contractors.
He is a graduate of the University of Santo Tomas. He started out at his family-owned company where he was a purchasing manager. He has 13 older brothers and sisters who also worked there which he says meant he felt pressured to keep working there but ultimately decided to step out on his own. When he was recruited to manage a travel agency he jumped at the chance. His success at managing this agency caught the eye of the leadership at Gano Excel who were able to lure him away and into the direct selling industry. His knowledge of Chinese herbal remedies was also a key part of why they wanted to hire him.
