The Asian Institute of Management proudly congratulates Mr. Alex Tanwangco, MBM 73, chairman and owner of Topserve Service Solutions, Inc. (TSSI), for his company’s notable selection as winner of the Fast Enterprise Award in the prestigious Asia Pacific Enterprise Awards.



Topserve Service Solutions, Inc. started as a humble provider of contracted services with thirty- five (35) employees in 1997.  Under Alex’ stewardship, it quickly created a niche in the aviation industry as a superior supplier of aircraft maintenance servicing for several airline companies.


Not one to rest on his laurels, Alex saw further opportunities for his company and quickly expanded and consolidated its foothold in the manufacturing/packing services, merchandising, retail services, hotels, fast food chains, logistics and courier/delivery services, administrative/office based services, business process outsource (BPO), and finance industries.


To-date, Topserve Services Solutions, Inc. has more than 25,000 personnel deployed out of its 16 offices nationwide.  It continues to provide top quality services to its long list of clients with quality personnel for skilled, contracted, administrative, technical and managerial positions.  Its esteemed partners include Delta Airlines, KLM, Lufthansa, Cebu Pacific, Shangri-la, ADB, Globe, SM, Pepsi, Mondelez, URC, Jollibee, Chowking, Estee Lauder, St. Luke’s Medical Center, DB Schenker, Manila Hotel, and many more.


With the company’s impressive growth under an excellent management team, the Asia Pacific Enterprise Awards is but a fitting recognition of Alex’ vision and business acumen.  As a leading non-government organization, Enterprise Asia promotes entrepreneurship as an engine for sustainable and progressive economic and social development in the region.  Its advocacy is anchored on two pillars: investment in people and responsible entrepreneurship, the same exact tenets that Alex has pursued with passion in leading TSSI to its leading position in its 23 years of existence.


The Asia Pacific Enterprise Awards 2020 will be presented in a virtual ceremony on November 20, 2020.  As one of this year’s winners, Alex joins business luminaries like Rahul Bajaj, Chairman of Bajaj Auto Ltd., Dato’ Rosie Tan, Group CEO of Tan Chong Motor Holdings Berhad, Tan Sri Datuk G. Gnanalingam, Executive Chairman of Westports Malaysia Sdn Berhad, Kwek Leng Beng, Executive Chairman of the Hong Leong Group of Singapore, Tony Tan Caktiong, Chairman of Jollibee Foods Corporation, and other leading entrepreneurs in the region.


Well done indeed, Alex!  You have our utmost admiration and respect for all your great achievements.  Thank you for flying AIM’s flag proudly as one of Asia’s top entrepreneurs.
