The moving force behind the Equicom Group is Antonio L. Go, a seasoned, well-respected banker, and businessman in the Philippines.

Mr. Go was Chairman of Equitable PCI Bank (founded in 1950 by Go Kim Pah, his father) which was then the third largest bank in the Philippines. Mr. Go was a Director in the Equitable Banking Group, one of the largest financial services groups in the country. He also held other key management positions in various companies in the Philippines and Singapore.

Antonio Go pioneered the credit card industry in the Philippines, which in turn led to the founding of Equitable Card Network (ECN), the largest credit card issuer and acquirer in the Philippines. It was also the only card issuer that simultaneously carried the four global credit card brands, namely VISA, MasterCard, American Express, and JCB. In addition, ECN had the widest Point-of-Sale (POS) terminal network in the country.

Mr. Go was a member of the Executive Committee of VISA International Worldwide and a Director as well. He served as Chairman of the VISA International Pacific Board from 1998 to 2005 and was a Director since 1980.

The Equicom Group, under the stewardship of Group Chairman Antonio L. Go and Vice Chairman Rene J. Buenaventura, will be a significant niche player in the Philippine market over the next several years as it takes full advantage of its pool of talent and strength in technology to serve corporate and individual clients in the areas of healthcare, financial services, and information technology.
