Title: Owner and Project Director
Company: Ascend Construction & Restoration Inc.
Location: Ocoee, Florida, United States

Saw Oo-Velasco, the owner and project director at Ascend Construction & Restoration Inc., has been recognized by Marquis Who’s Who Top Business Owners for dedication, achievements, and leadership in the field of construction.

Hailing from two decades of experience in her chosen field, Ms. Oo-Velasco has earned distinction as the owner and project director of Ascend Construction & Restoration Inc., a certified general contractor that specializes in residential and commercial construction, as well as expansions, renovations, and repairs, on behalf of clients throughout more than 10 counties in Florida. In this capacity, she is primarily responsible for overseeing the daily operations of the business, as well as project management, design and planning. Among her achievements in the construction industry, Ms. Oo-Velasco is most proud to have helped others protect their properties and investments, particularly from unforeseen events or calamities. 

Before embarking upon her professional journey, Ms. Oo-Velasco drew deeply from the influence of her uncle, a certified general contractor and marine engineer based in London, who inspired much of his family to become involved in a similar line of work. Proud to have sustained his legacy, Ms. Oo-Velasco’s business began in a humble garage – with years of effort, however, her company grew to have its own showroom, warehouse and office space. An accomplished entrepreneur, she is also gratified to have distinguished herself as one of the first women in Myanmar to bring several American franchises to her native country, including insurance companies and restaurants. Furthermore, Ascend Construction & Restoration Inc. won an accolade for its role in building factories for several Fortune 500 companies in Asia. 

Though her career path has been laden with memorable moments, Ms. Oo-Velasco is particularly thankful to have earned the respect and appreciation of her clients. Additionally, she has cherished the opportunity to provide a sustainable lifestyle for her more than 3,000 employees, many of whom had little to their name before she employed them. In accounting for her success, she largely credits her sense of internal motivation, as well as her passion for helping others. Looking toward the future, Ms. Oo-Velasco aspires to gradually withdraw from her current responsibilities and turn her attention to volunteerism and charity on behalf of the underprivileged in Asia, building assisted living facilities for the elderly and youth centers for those who suffer from domestic violence.
