Tan is a billionaire businessman from the Philippines who engages in real estate, liquor and fast food. In 2010, Forbes Magazine rated him fifth on its Philippines 40 richest list, estimating his net worth at $1.2 billion. Originally a simple immigrant from China, Tan was born in the Fujian province. He spent his childhood at an apartment in Hong Kong which was shared by other families and had short supply. Later, he moved to Manila where he studied accounting at University of the East. For economic reasons, he would head to school walking rather than riding on public transportation. He then graduated. During his early years in business, the government of Quezon City honored him Businessman of the Year for 2004.
