President Ferdinand Marcos Jr. appointed a new set of officials at Clark International Airport Corp. (CIAC).

Joshua Bingcang has been named acting president and chief executive, as well as board member of CIAC. Also appointed to the board as acting directors are Dante Francis Ang II, Monico Puentevella Jr., and Julius Raboca.

Transport Secretary Jaime Bautista administered the oath of office to the new appointees recently.

CIAC is a subsidiary of the Bases Conversion and Development Authority (BCDA) and is also attached to the Department of Transportation, which exercises policy supervision and operational control over the government-owned and controlled corporation.

Bingcang was senior vice president for business development and operations group of BCDA.

He was also the head of the New Clark City Project Management Office and Subic-Clark-Tarlac Expressway Services Department, and had led the expansion of Clark International Airport (CRK).

From 2019 to 20202, he was appointed officer-in-charge of CIAC, months after the privatization of CRK and during the height of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Bingcang holds a Master’s Degree in Business Administration from the University of the Philippines and a Bachelor’s Degree in Electrical Engineering from Holy Angel University. He also attended the Executive Training Programme in Urban Policy and Governance at Nanyang Technological University in Singapore and the Public-Private Partnerships in Infrastructure programme at Harvard Kennedy School.

Ang is president and CEO of The Manila Times newspaper, while Puentevella is a former congressman and mayor of Bacolod City and a director of John Hay Management Corp. Raboca, on the other hand, has been a director at CIAC since 2018.

CIAC manages the 2,367-hectare Clark civil aviation complex, which is home to the privately run CRK, the mixed-use business district Clark Global City, and other locators engaged in manufacturing, information and technology, renewable energy, and other non-aviation-related industries.
