The Ironmark—a symbol of strength and durability. This likewise signifies Volvo Cars’ recognition of people who have made a difference and a mark in their chosen field. This year, the Ironmark Award goes to Mr Jose Ma. A. Concepcion III, President and Chief Executive Officer of RFM Coorporation.

Joey Concepcion, as he is fondly called by many, also heads a host of top companies involved in various sectors. Moreover, he founded Go Negosyo, an entity that empowers Filipinos to pursue entrepreneurship, giving them the proper tools and knowledge to do so. It has been so successful that it has changed the mindset of many a Filipino to set up their own business rather than simply be an employee.

As with the Ironmark Award, Volvo and its offerings symbolize strength and durability, not to mention being the hallmark of safety in the automotive industry. Aside from pioneering some groundbreaking safety technology, Volvo cars are considered to be some of the most lasting offerings out there.
