Leadership

“There is no more noble occupation in the world today than to assist another human being to become what they can be.”

The Spark Amber Management Team has more than 50 years of experience combined in the life insurance business. Coming from diverse backgrounds — IT, consumer goods, medical, property, architecture, banking and BPO — SALIA’s agency leaders have built a wealth of professional successes that they have brought into Spark Amber to produce one of the most dynamic and dominant branches in Pru Life UK. It is the belief of the management team that our job is to build trusted advocates in the organization and this, in turn, will allow us to achieve our vision of securing 1 Million Filipino families. 

To date, we have grown from 25 trusted advocates to now more than 300. We are looking for more business partners and business leaders to help us in this vision and mission of ours.
