Founder & CEO
Martin Eyking, the Founder and CEO of New Media Services, was born and raised in Beverwijk, The Netherlands. He left The Netherlands at the young age of 17 with a chefs qualification under his belt and took on the world. 28 years later, the idea of New Media Services came to fruition. In those 28 years, there were many business ventures, career changes and ups and downs. Martin is a man known for his tenacity and direct nature, leading to the success of New Media Services.
In 2020, Martin lives in Melbourne, Australia, with his wife of 25 years, 3 kids and 3 (crazy) dogs. He runs the business from his home office with multiple trips to the USA/Europe and The Philippines throughout the year to work alongside his staff in their new state of the art office in The Philippines and to meet with international clients. When Martin is not working you can usually find him playing golf, scratching his head over puzzles or riding his motorbike to the local cafe for his daily coffee.
Martins hard work and determination has led him to where he is today, however New Media Services would not be possible without the incredible team of executives, managers and team members.
Rafael Nacionales, Jr., sitting as the Chief Executive Officer, leads a team of six executives who attend to the operational needs of the Company and its people. His mantra of leadership is to lead from the front.
He is a lawyer by training. Before joining New Media Services, he worked in litigation and held professorial chairs in Constitutional Law, Criminal Law, Remedial Law and Family Law. He holds a bachelor’s degree in Political Science and master’s degree in Public Administration.
Atty. Raffy, as fondly called by his colleagues, savors his personal life by travelling, reading and gardening.
Venturing from an entirely non-business background to the competitive, finance-driven and volatile world of business, he has been guided and sustained by the philosophy that for one to truly grow, he must chart the travails of the unknown and the uncertain, learn it, labor on it and excel on it.
Ingenuity, tenacity and excellence are his trifecta of success. With this, he is now rolling up his sleeves for the arduous task of making New Media Services a global leader in BPO services and a partner of its clients for mutual business growth.
