Manny Valencia worked in the electronics test and engineering industry for 20 years. The most recent is in computer workstation testing and engineering at Silicon Graphics, Inc. and then at a semiconductor company Conexant Systems doing prototype engineering and testing of MPEG products.
In the 90’s, I joined the Filipino American Chamber of Commerce of Santa Clara County and became a lifetime member. Using my skills in video production and corporate experience in business presentations, I helped create videos and presentations to inspire members in joining the Filipino American chamber and pursue in achieving a breakthrough in entering the corporate world of Silicon Valley and also bridge the gap of corporate business in Silicon Valley and the Philippines.
In 2005, I decided to do a full time business of video production for television broadcasting and advertising. In this business, I have seen Filipino Americans achieve a corporate status quo by reaching out to the 1.2 million Filipino diaspora all over America by television broadcasting. This idea is still true today.
In my term as president of the Filipino American Chamber of Commerce of Silicon Valley, I would like to use my skill in broadcast technology to help our members thrive and contribute in rebuilding America from the Covid-19 pandemic.
