Michael Angelo F. Banting
Mike has been a BPO professional since 2002 and has managed a variety of teams in different companies, LOBs, and verticals for more than a decade. He is also an entrepreneur and is involved in the food business.
He is a fast-paced individual, expert in outlier management, performance improvement, training, people development, and coaching. Colleagues would describe him as an advocate of talent development and process improvement. He values integrity and servant leadership and also firmly believes in enabling people to succeed in meeting goals and objectives.
In REVA, as his second home, Mike consistently takes steps to incrementally level-up himself and his teams, championing a well-structured workplace and culture of continuous improvement.
Outside of work, he considers himself an artist, musician, and a flick-geek in his own right. He finds no shame in his unread books collecting dust at the moment.
Jose Ramon B. Arnaiz
Joey Arnaiz has been a sales, business development and training professional for close to 20 years. His area of expertise is in solutions selling and has built a career in sharing his knowledge and experiences to aspiring professionals. He has mentored dozens of industry leaders allowing them to excel in their chosen fields.
Before joining REVA Global, he was the Director of Sales and Monetization for an international advertising company focused on IT solutions. He was also a professional musician, arranger, and songwriter who has worked with some of the top national and international artists.
He has been working with Bob Lachance for more than 4 years realizing the dream of creating a premier virtual assistant company. He has also handled multiple departments in the company such as recruitment, human resources, training, and operations before settling down in training to mold virtual assistants and trainers into partners who will help take the company to higher levels.
Jerry comes to REVA Global with a diverse background in sales, sales training, and operational management. He is a graduate of the prestigious Art Center College of Design, Pasadena with a BFA in Advertising Design. While still in school, worked as an Art Director in Downtown Los Angeles on accounts such as McDonald’s and Toyota. The one lesson he took away from his education is “always think laterally” – most people call it “out of the box”.
His sales background started with cars- Mercedes Benz. With a successful 2 year run at selling
Jerry moved to the Philippines in 2010 to manufacture and distribute items he had invented and patented. Admittedly, he was to find out he was not suited, nor prepared, to own and operate an international business. So he took his talents to the BPO industry and grew in the ranks quite quickly. Within 9 months, almost single-handedly, by creating sales seminars, scripts, and coaching programs, the largest internet provider in the States saw sales increase by 300% for the Makati, Manila site- which was #1 for all international BPO sites. He was most recently the Senior Account manager of an online digital marketing agency where he was tasked with being the point of contact for the majority of the clients. As a lead marketing strategist, Jerry also was essential to invoicing and accounting, project management and customer service.
Light-hearted in nature and bit comedic at times, Jerry brings an enthusiasm and energy which permeates a room. With his vast skill set, sales experience, and real estate background, we are happy to introduce our newest Operations Manager.
