If diligence is the mother of good luck, it makes sense that good karma succeeds right action. Accordingly, Jhett Tolentino personifies the insight of Benjamin Franklin's instructive aphorism. The Grammy and three-time Tony Award-winning Broadway producer (“A Gentleman's Guide to Love And Murder,” “A Raisin In the Sun”) is unflagging in his pursuit of excellence. His inspirational career (“behind the scenes,” as he likes to point out) anchors on the abiding tenet of managing opportunity with painstaking research.
