Philanthropy continues to make significant changes in the lives of many people around the world. Businesspeople and entrepreneurs are venturing into philanthropy with the aim of making a positive impact in this world. Recently, the former world boxing champion Nonito Donaire Jr. joined Greg Secker in handing over 100 homes for victims affected by a typhoon in Lemery and Capinahan. The boxer has made it his mission to encourage athletes to take up roles that help in making a difference in the society. Donaire was in the company of his wife, Rachel.
According to Donaire, there is so much that boxers can do to inspire people outside the ring. He called on the athletes to stand up and have a voice of making a difference. There is so much that athletes can do to change the lives of people. The bigger picture, perhaps, is in the construction of more homes for the less fortunate. In 2009, the boxer made a donation of P1 Million that went to the rehabilitation of homes affected by a typhoon. According to him, there is no better way of starting 2018 than by donating towards a noble act through Greg Secker Foundation.
Besides philanthropy, Greg Secker is an entrepreneur, an author, and a leadership speaker. Over the years, he has participated in several charitable activities through the Greg Secker Foundation. In 2013, Typhoon Haiyan struck Iloilo which prompted him to start a housing rehabilitation program for the affected people. He proceeded to identify a suitable location that is today, known as the Greg Secker Foundation Village.
Thomas Cook Financial Services was the first institution that Greg Secker landed an opportunity. After a short period, he moved to the foreign exchange business and developed the Virtual Trading Desk. The VTD became the first platform where people would trade online in real time. The platform catapulted his career, and by 25, he was the vice president of Mellon Financial Corporation. With time, his fortune grew at an exponential rate, and by 27, he retired.
After retirement, Greg launched a trading floor that has seen a subscription of more than 100,000 people. Today, Greg Secker is an international speaker and Philanthropist.
