Sheila Lobien is currently the Chief Executive Officer and the main force in putting up Lobien Realty Group, Inc. (LRG), a full-service real estate consultancy and property investments strategy firm engaged in commercial and office space leasing, capital investments optimization and property acquisition and sales. She envisions LRG to become a major player in the Philippines' real estate industry in the next several years. Sheila believes that LRG's core team-- which was instrumental in leasing out more than a million square meters of office and commercial space in key business districts in the Philippines in less than a decade-- will bring the same professionalism, dedication and phenomenal performance in LRG.
Prior to Lobien Realty Group, Sheila was a Regional Director and Head of Project Leasing of a Fortune 500 property consulting firm. She was also a General Manager of Regus Manila and was one of those who spearheaded Regus' then-novel concept of shared and plug-and-play office space in the early 2000's. Currently, Regus has more than 30 business centers all over the Philippines, making it the leading shared office company in the country.
Sheila advocates gender equality and women empowerment. She currently chairs the Women in Business Committee of the European Chamber of Commerce in the Philippines (ECCP), whose key activities provide an avenue for mentoring, networking and other social activities geared to uplifting women professionals in the Philippines.
