Governor Eddie Calvo

Before he was a senator, Eddie Calvo worked for the Pacific Construction Company from 1983 to 1987, stocking shelves and off loading containers of fertilizer and home improvement material before working his way up to eventually manage PCC.

Senator Calvo then went on to manage more than 100 employees and a multimillion dollar operation when he was General Manager and Vice President of Pepsi Cola Bottling Company of Guam from 1987 to 1998. The company, under his leadership, turned remarkable profits, employed more people into lifelong careers, increased wages, contributed to the growth of the community, donated hundreds of thousands in cash and in-kind contributions to charity and $75,000 alone to the Red Cross for Paka relief before leaving the private sector.

He left the private sector in 1998, when he won a seat in the Twenty-fifth Guam Legislature. Senator Calvo spent five terms in the Legislature fighting for increased education funding, career opportunities for all, better health care, the safety of our neighborhoods, the rights of the unborn and responsible financial planning.

Eddie Calvo earned a Bachelor of Business Administration Degree with an emphasis in Accounting and Management at the College of Notre Dame in Belmont, California in 1983.

He has been involved in various charitable, philanthropic, and professional organizations, including the Guam Chamber of Commerce, the Guam Chapter of the Young Presidents Organization, the Guam Lytico and Bodig Association, the Guam National Baseball Team, the Boy Scouts of America, the American Red Cross and the Knights of Columbus.

In November 2010 after a very competitive race, Eddie Calvo was elected Governor of Guam. He, along with his running mate Senator Ray Tenorio, were sworn in and began the Calvo-Tenorio Administration in January, 2011.
