Congratulations Romi Garduce! 3rd Filipino to reach Mt. Everest! First P&G-er to reach Mt. Everest!


Congratulations Romi for reaching the highest peak in the World!! We are all celebrating your success!! So now, the Filipino trio is complete– Leo Oracion, Erwin Pastour Emata, and Romi Garduce — the first three Filipinos who reached Everest! Also, It was funny to see the big boss in our Manila Service Center, Greg Clark on TV congratulating Romi. I’m actually validating with P&G management whether Romi might be the First ever P&G manager worldwide to have reach the summit of Mt. Everest. It would take a while to validate it but knowing the people and the work in P&G, I wouldn’t be surprised if he is indeed the first manager in Procter and Gamble worldwide to summit Everest!! Congrats, pre!! 3 summits down, 4 to go :)!!

  1. Now the real question is did he do any consumer testing while he was up there? There could be new markets on the top of Mt. Everest!

  2. i think the elbrus climb should not be included in the 7summits he has ticked off already. though he climbed it, he turned back at 5400+, about 200m short of the summit.
    to be considered youve done the 7summits, you must summit each. not just attempt it.
    hope this helps.
