Manny Ayala
Passionate about entrepreneurship as a driver for growth, Manny constantly seeks avenues to share knowledge, skills and experience with the country's next crop of entrepreneurs. 

As Hatchd Digital's chairman and chief instigator, Manny has managed to bring together some of the industry's best to make up the core Hatchd Digital team. With his experience as investment bank IRG's managing director, responsible for the investment and sale of various digital media assets in Malaysia, Brazil and the Philippines, his participation in Entrepreneurs' Organization (EO), his enthusiasm and fortitude, one would be confident that Manny sees ideas through to success.

We aren't your stereotypical serious, straight-laced business or tech people. Sure, creating great tech products and businesses are what we want to be known for, but we're also largely about creating a dynamic company culture - encouraging fun & positive vibes, bonding over food or "snack attacks", and on occasion, sharing nice cold bottles of beer.

Each of Hatchd Digital's pillars has exceptional achievements across their respective fields, and seek to create effective, game-changing digital brands or products, but at the end of the day they all remain really humble, down-to-earth people. Read on to learn more about the people behind Hatchd Digital.

Marilen Tantamco

Responsible and results-driven, Marilen as one of the directors of Hatchd Group, brings into the company her years of experience in marketing and product management at Smart Communications, EGG (now Yondu), Microsoft Great Plains and San Miguel Corporation.  She was also a board of director and Treasurer of the Internet and Mobile Marketing Association of the Philippines (IMMAP) in 2014. 

Marilen is all about the people. She's driven by the desire to help other people learn and develop themselves, and ensures that results stem from her team's hard work.  

 Marilen is currently the General Manager of Eden Holdings Philippines Inc.

Robert Locke

Filipino born and raised, Rob went to the US to study computer science in UC Berkeley andfound contentment on working and staying in the US up until circumstances led him back home to the Philippines, where he fell in love with the country all over again and decided to stay for good. Luckily, Manny met Rob when he was Chief Technology Officer of Digital Media Exchange, and invited him to be Hatchd's brilliant resident IT guy with whom digital ideas get the proper backbone and architecture. 

Not to be mistaken for the stereotypical computer geek, Rob, along with the rest of the guys at Hatchd, also enjoys spending time with family and hanging out with friends over beer, or cozying up on the couch for Modern Family or Game of Thrones, and getting up off it for some ultimate frisbee.

Being in a room with Nix is like getting sucked into a vortex of thoughts and ideas, with his propensity for storytelling and aptitude for connecting dots where they didn't seem to exist before. After graduating, Nix managed to engage in many conversations with people from a variety of field and industries, allowing him to deftly join ideas one might otherwise not have thought to pair, and make them work together to create unique products and services. 

While a business management graduate, Nix is no stranger to digital and he managed to foresee the industry's potential,as validated by the success of his company Xurpas, Inc., a mobile content provider. He is also a member of Entrepreneurs' Organization (EO) with Manny.
