Philippines gaming regulator PAGCOR has appointed former Vice President of its Corporate Social Responsibility Group, James Patrick Bondoc, to the agency’s Board of Directors.
Bondoc will replace recently deceased former director Reynaldo E. Concordia on the PAGCOR board to serve out the remainder of Concordia’s term, which expires on 30 June 2022. He will take his oath at Malacanang Palace but has already been sworn into office so he can immediately assume his duties.
Bondoc said his new position will help him provide more support to the current programs and initiatives of the PAGCOR management.
“Former Director Concordia used to actively take part in PAGCOR’s Corporate Social Responsibility programs,” he said. “He would go even to remote places to ensure that PAGCOR’s socio-civic initiatives would reach those who need them most. I will offer my services in memory of him and to serve our Chairman’s best intentions.
“Also, being in this new position will allow me to make policy adjustments that will further enhance PAGCOR’s Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) programs and hopefully, the agency’s revenue generation capacity amidst the ongoing pandemic,” he said.
Bondoc serves as the head of PAGCOR’s CSR Group from October 2017 to July 2021 and was previously Assistant Vice President of the agency’s Entertainment Department from 2016 to 2017.
