Rags to riches is an accurate description of Arthur Tugade’s life story. He grew up in a squatters’ area called Tatalon Estates. Despite his impoverished background, Art was able to finish Law at San Beda College thanks to his parents’ self-sacrifice and a scholarship.

After founding Perry's Holding Corporation, Art has turned his attention to public service and is now the president and CEO of the Clark Development Corporation (CDC), the organization responsible for managing the real estate of the former US base. He is credited for turning the organization around and the explosive growth of the Clark Freeport Zone in recent years.

Recently, he and his leadership team won the 2015 Asia CEO Award the Executive Leadership of the Year.
