Converge ICT’s amazing Grace

The deities of the universe must have whispered to her parents’ ears what name would best fit her. Thus, the most befitting name was given to Maria Grace Uy. The president and co-founder of Converge ICT Solutions Inc. is certainly a woman who carries herself with much grace.

That’s the first thing you’ll notice when you meet her – she is gracious, poised, kind, confident and beautiful inside and out. Her style is simple yet elegant. Simplicity, she believes, is the ultimate form of sophistication.

Thus, upon the prodding of her mother, Grace made sure she studied hard. She pursued a Bachelor of Science in Accountancy at the De La Salle University and eventually landed in 16th place in the Certified Public Accountant (CPA) Licensure Board Examination in 1989.

Obviously, she loved numbers.

After finishing her studies, she worked for a multinational, which helped her
