Board of Directors

Despite the busy schedule that sees 50 percent of Jenda’s time traveling through airports on business, the self-professed grill master is at the ready for the next barbecue with his Texas survival skills. As he puts it, “I feel bad when I have failed to treat that prime-quality, marbled ribeye well.” Metropia's board member believes that life is short ... 

At Metropia, Jenda developed the organizational strategy and mission while ensuring efficient and effective business operations. He also marshalled limited resources to the most productive uses with the aim of strategic planning and maximum value for the company's stakeholders. Having earned his BA in Industrial Engineering from National Chiao Tung University in Taiwan and an MBA from Ateneo de Manila University in the Philippines, the songs in Jenda’s iTunes playlist are one-third in Chinese, one-third in Tagalog, and one-third in English. When he’s not grooving to those tunes, showing the grill who’s boss, or guiding Metropia to its next success, Jenda enjoys a little bit of all the best things in life: food and wine, guitar and singing, movies, golfing, hiking, and basketball, traveling, bible reading and life study, and spending time with his family.
