Liberty Lighthouse Group Second Decade!

A new Decade has brought a new starts for Liberty Lighthouse Group.

Most of you know me from the Liberty Lighthouse Group company. Liberty Lighthouse Group was established on March 17, 2000. As we enter our second decade of doing business we are not celebrating but preparing ourselves for what we believe will be a far better decade for the ASIA PACIFIC REGION and our Brand Companies. In preparing ourselves, I decided to take on a partner Noni MANGUBAT, revamp our web site and the re-introduction of Oceanus AP web site and business.

Noni Mangubat – Partner: we’ve worked together for 12 years in the Philippines with Premier Wines and Spirits Distribution Company. My trust in Noni came in the early days with his hard work ethic, friendly approach to doing business and his ease in making people understand and want to work with him. Noni managed his career on a successful path in his many roles; financial roles for companies, CPA, General Manager of Duty Free for Premier, while always setting specific objectives that were resulted oriented.  Now, we did not have a winning year every year, in the Philippines, but I noticed that even in hard times his colleagues and clients always turned to him for guidance. I credit Noni in guiding and setting up OCEANUS AP.  Noni’s role will develop over time to where you count on him as much as I do. Noni is keen to know each of you and will do so by offering immediate help on Issues, Conduct Trainings, and Market visits to offer his Support and Advice from our brand Companies to You.

Brand Company’s : We want to thank all the Brand Companies that started with us since 2000 and that are still with us today; THANK YOU!

10 Years Working Together

Thanks to La Fee for trusting us with their forbidden spirit over the past 3 years.

La Fee is not the easiest brand too to explain, in the beginning, but with its excellent reputation as being the best in the category. La Fee Absinthe is now the leading selling Absinthe in the Asia Pacific region! La Fee Absinthe is truly unique brand that will become big as markets relax their drinking laws for Absinthe. LA FEE was the first real Absinthe to launch in America in 2009 to thunderous support from the trade and eager consumers!
