The 2013 Excellence in Business was given to BILLY ERICKSON y VITAS of San Diego, California, USA. 

He is the son of Frances Vitas and of Guillermo Erickson y Sauza, the son of William Erickson and of Sylvia Sauza y Salcedo, the daughter of Doña Elena Salcedo y Gutierrez and of Don Francisco Javier Sauza y Enriquez, the son of Doña Silveria Enriquez y Mora and of Don Eladio Sauza y Muro, the son of Doña Margarita Muro and of Don Cenobio Sauza y Navarro, the son of Doña Margarita Navarro y Madrigal and of Don Hilario Sauza, the brother of Don Santiago Sauza, the husband of  Doña Ysabel Berenguer de Marquina y Sumulong, the only child of Doña Demetria Sumulong y Lindo and of Señor Felix Berenguer de Marquina y FitzGerald, the 55th Governor-General of the Philippines of Alicante, Spain and from The Royal.& Noble House of FitzGerald of Ireland.

His worth inspiring business minded attitude of promoting the more-than-a-century legacy of our Sauza ancestors is truly remarkable and extraordinary.
