Former Armed Forces of the Philippines (AFP) chief of staff Gen. (ret) Rey Leonardo Guerrero has formally been appointed as the new administrator of the Maritime Industry Authority (Marina).

President Rodrigo Duterte announced Guerrero’s appointment in mid-April but signed his appointment paper only on April 26.

Guerrero, who will serve as Marina administrator until July 10, 2022, replaced Marcial Quirico Amaro III, who was fired by Duterte last January for supposed excessive foreign travels.

Transportation undersecretary for maritime Felipe Judan oversaw Marina operations until recently.

Guerrero is a graduate of the Philippine Military Academy Maharlika Class of 1984. Prior to his appointment as AFP chief of staff in October last year, Guerrero headed the Davao-based Eastern Mindanao Command.

He was also former commander of the Philippine Army’s 61st Infantry Battalion, a member of then President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo’s Presidential Security Group, and former Army chief of staff, among other posts.

He is a four-time recipient of the Distinguished Service Star; Order of Lakan Dula (Degree of Commander); Philippine Legion of Honor (Degree of Officer); and Honorary Airborne Wings from the Royal Thai Army, among other service awards.
