Cebuana Lhuillier President and CEO Jean Henri Lhuillier finds Filipinos are one of the most resilient people in the world.  He describes them as having the ability to face “life’s challenges facing life’s challenges with optimism, faith, and a can-do attitude.  And Lhuillier believes that such traits must be recognized and encouraged at all times. 

The Unique Filipino Spirit

“It is only fitting that we reach the final stages of the search this month – to coincide with the International Day of Happiness on March 20, as declared by the United Nations to recognize happiness as a “fundamental human goal.”  Similarly, we at Cebuana Lhuillier believe that an inclusive and well-balanced approach to economic growth is a means to promote the happiness and well-being of every person,” Lhuillier adds. 

The Search for the Happiest Pinoy received recognition from the  48th Anvil Awards, International Business Awards, Panata Awards Philippine Quill Awards, and the Golden Bridge Awards.
