Clyde Ayura, Consultant

HR Practice Area


For Clyde, the virtues of passion, patience and perseverance at work are no mere lip service. She actually breathes these success elements as she quietly clinches her mandates for HR roles.  Believing that passion is the key to success in any human endeavour, she would also be quick to add another complementary ingredient to the mix , i.e., that of being determined to succeed.  It is obvious that Clyde has both the passion and the determination for what she does which have served her well throughout her eight “short” years with the firm.


Clyde has shared a mystical thought that she almost didn’t make it on earth. How? Well, she said that her Mom’s life was put at very, very serious risk when giving birth to her older sister who is actually her only sibling. I must admit this one is deep and stretches our imagination.  The good news is – Clyde is here with us, here on earth, at 139 Corporate Center.


Clyde is kind, thoughtful and caring for her family and friends. She is to be admired for having continuously helped support her parents from the time she got her first job.  Always God-fearing, she is never without her rosary in her wallet, reminding herself that she could resort to divine intervention at any moment.


Clyde absolutely enjoys travelling, spending time with her family, and collecting pictures from out of town getaways.  She rewards herself with a little binging on good eats and strong coffee after a stressful day at work.


A consummate book lover, Clyde is not one to shy away from the powers of horoscopes, destiny and fate, and yes, even a love that last forever.  No, she doesn’t think this is cheesy.


Clyde is probably too unassuming to a fault, but when it comes to strictly HR search mandates, we can take it to the bank that, indeed, she knows whereof she speaks!

Patrick Simon A. Tiongson

Banking and Finance Group



For new acquaintances, some might describe Patrick as someone who enjoys keeping things to himself or perhaps being a very shy, quiet and reserved individual. But the truth is quite surprising. At an early age, he already enjoyed public speaking as he was active in participating in interpretative reading contests and that he became a regular lector during Masses. He also took pleasure in participating in outreach activities where he felt a strong sense of self-fulfillment.


I also suspect that not many people know that Patrick graduated with a Cum Laude in Broadcast Communications at the University of the Philippines.


At present, Patrick still enjoys activities with others -- like being a choir member in a known charismatic community and in practicing Capoeira, a Brazilian martial arts that combine elements of dance, acrobatics and music, which he says encourages him to push himself to the limit.

Lean Joy M. Varias

Executive Assistant/Receptionist , Admin Group 



Lean, at quick first glance, looks like she just does mostly clerical work at the office.  She’s an Executive Assistant/Receptionist in KSearch, after all. But she really does much more than that.  In the first place, she is the face of KSearch -- as she would be the first person that a visitor of the firm would come into contact with. Didn’t we all say that “first impression lasts”?  Well, there is a very, very good certainty that our visitor would go away feeling welcome and well attended to after being received by Lean at our front office. Among others, she forms part of our effective billing and collection process aside from her role of updating the firm’s website



Lean, a graduate of Nursing, has a balance of interests.  She is determined to improve on her work skills just as she is also quite good at finding the time to hang out with her friends and attend musical gigs at every opportunity.  She is also pretty adventurous with trying out new cuisines.  



In Lean’s bucket list is travelling around the Philippines and climbing mountains as she goes along.  It would be interesting to know more about her other aspirations, I’m sure.  Character-wise, I’m aware that she is a great friend to many!

David Bien (Dave) B. Paje

Banking and Finance Group


If we have any questions about history and facts, there is one guy that almost everyone in KSearch comes to. Yes, that is Dave! From international news to local news, from Nomads arriving in India to the sailing of Columbus, from Religions to War history, etc, he knows them all.


Few of Dave’s unforgettable moments, which he thinks he learned from and lived by, were the numerous vacations spent at every army bases where his father was assigned. In these bases, without any means to pass the time, he found himself reading books about history, current events, military and the likes which got him hooked. This eventually developed his deep interest in them.


He is seen to be serious and a silent type of person most of the time, but not everyone knows that inside Dave resides a jolly and a conversational person. Aside from talking about history and facts, you could also talk to him everything about video games, toys, movies and books.


He plans to practice diplomacy someday and also harness his interest in history and current events.


Yes, that’s Dave, our forever eloquent and walking encyclopedia!  Next time you have a question, just “google” Dave!
