for his expertise in the industry of information technology distribution and his leadership that steered computer manufacturing and dealership towards huge growth and development in the country
Shortly after graduating with a Magna Cum Laude in Electronics and Communication Engineering, Go co-established MicroCircuits Corp. which quickly grew to MicroCircuits Systems International (MSI). By 1998, Go partnered with regional IT distributor Digiland Singapore which allowed his company to enter the Information and Communications Technology (ICT) distribution market. After MSI’s partnership ended with Digiland, Go formed a joint venture with ECS Holdings Group, one of the largest ICT distributors in the Asia Pacific region. Since then, MSI-ECS has won numerous distribution awards, both in the Philippines and overseas. They are the biggest importer of top ICT brands such as Acer, Apple, Cisco, Dell, IBM, Lenovo, Microsoft, Oracle and Samsung. Thanks to Go’s tireless enterprising spirit, MSI has shot to the top 100 corporations in the country. As a result, their contributions to the economy and the Philippine IT landscape are invaluable. Aside from being president and CEO of MSI-ECS Phils., Go has also served as the President of COMDDAP (Computer Manufacturers, Distributors and Dealers Association of the Philippines) along with other professional organizations.
