The talent manager also worked diligently to secure multiple upcoming projects, such as TV commercials and endorsements set to launch later this year.
The manager expressed pride in helping Herlene achieve her dreams, such as acquiring a new home, car, and other investments. They shared core values with Herlene, emphasizing commitment, professionalism, and gratitude, which they believe will continue to be vital in her future endeavors.
Expressing gratitude to the companies that trusted Herlene, the talent manager acknowledged the successful partnerships and contracts signed with brands like Jag Jeans, GSM Blue, Silka, Pizza Hut, World Balance, Ever Bilena Cosmetics, and many others.
Additionally, they extended their appreciation to GMA Network-Kapuso Channel-7, the KF Crown.Glory.Legacy headed by Direk Rodin Gilbert B. Flores, the KaFreshness Admin, and all the devoted followers of Herlene, including the Kainutz, KaSquammy, KaHiponatics, and KaBudol communities.
The resignation of Herlene’s talent manager marks the end of a fruitful collaboration, but both parties are optimistic about the future. Herlene’s career is expected to continue flourishing with upcoming endorsement deals, television shows, and potential movie projects.
While bidding farewell for now, the talent manager hopes to meet Herlene again in the future, knowing that the remarkable journey they embarked on together has made a significant impact on both their lives.
