The entrepreneur knows what Filipinas want

Three words one might use to describe Jessica Kienle Maxwell the first time they meet her: beauty, poised and tanned. The last adjective made possible with the beauty’s latest endeavor, the Philippines’ first spray tanning studio, aptly named Spray. The entrepreneur first caught our attention as the Head of Design and Merchandising for leading Philippine furniture manufacturer Philux, a business she runs with her sister, Stephanie Kienle Gonzalez. Now, she is one of the managing partners of Spray, which she founded together with her good friends Catalina Varona, Fabienne Aboitiz and Nicole Coromina Sala.

Despite all these on her plate, she seems to have mastered the art of time management, squeezing in family and personal time on a daily basis. “I divide my time working at Philux’s head office and visiting our showrooms across Manila. Now with Spray, there is one more shop I stop at,” she starts. “On a regular day, I have breakfast with my husband and my son Luca, drop Luca off to school on the way to our head office, then have meeting around the city in the afternoon. On a good day, I’ ll end with a game of tennis before retiring at home with a glass of wine and a good show on Netflix. As they say, it really is all about finding the type of balance that works for you,” she says with a warm smile.
