    Founder and CEO Steve Sy bounced back from a failing business venture to build Great Deals E-Commerce, the leading e-distributor in the Philippines. Addressing his own pain points of selling products online, Great Deals created a one-stop shop digital agency to help brands gain a foothold in the e-commerce realm –  from handling product inventory to web design to data analytics to chat support to logistics and delivery.  His roster of multinational companies include Reckitt Benckiser, Nestle, Samsonite, Reebok, Crocs, L’Oréal, Abbott and Unilever, among others. Great Deals’ success in e-commerce allowed them to raise US$12M (P 600 million) from Navegar, the largest private equity firm in the country.
