and he is fully capable and experience to run FPI regardless of the cyclical economic situations.
He graduated from University of Hawaii at Manoa with the Bachelor

certified contractor under the SBA Minority Development (MED), or 8(a)/SDB program. This was a time staking effort but in
order to survive the competitive construction market on Guam, this was the viable solution to stay in business.
