My hubby Alan could not believe his eyes when he read write-ups from this local head-hunting firm praising the late dictator Ferdinand Marcos and Adolf Hitler.
Below is the result of his investigation. I just helped him gather the reactions.
A Manila-based management recruiting firm that gives leadership awards has extolled Adolf Hitler, Joseph Stalin, Attila the Hun, Mao Zedong and Ferdinand Marcos as “superattainers” who are “high achieving individuals.”
The five appear as part of a long list of leadership exemplars on the website of Chalré Associates, which runs the Asia-CEO Awards and hosts a monthly “Asia CEO Forum.” This month, it is organising a lunch featuring senator Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos Jr, son of the deposed Philippine dictator.

Interestingly, Chalré Associates has a very long list of world leaders. But this doesn’t include the late President Corazon Aquino. It apparently does not consider the woman who was instrumental in booting out Marcos as a “superattainer”.
Chalré Associates operates the Asia CEO Forum, which hands out yearly awards that are well-attended by the country’s top businessmen.
