Philippines Airlines (PAL), following the public pronouncement of its new Executive Vice President last month, it is expected to see changes in leadership following the appointment of Vivienne K. Tan as the officer-in-charge of the company.
In a recent statement, the flag carrier was quoted to say that Ms. Tan has appointed Eugene Go as PAL’s new chief commercial and marketing officer and Rosemarie S. Katalbas as senior vice-president of the human capital department.
Speaking on the new appointment, PAL said Mr. Go has more than 27 years of marketing and commercial experience with companies such as Unilever and Johnson & Johnson, while Ms. Katalbas brings with her an experience in human resource management in industries across electronics manufacturing, solar energy, pharmaceutical, audit and management firm and financial services.
While speaking, Ms. Tan stated; “We’re working to make PAL more efficient and productive by improving business procedures; how we do things. Most importantly, I call on all of you to stand united as you carry out your duties and responsibilities in PAL”.
Ms. Tan was appointed OIC after long-time PAL President and Chief Operating Officer Jaime J. Bautista retired in June to “spend more time with his family.” She is the daughter of PAL Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Lucio C. Tan. — Denise A. Valdez
