Nancy Paglinawan has been appointed officer-in-charge (OIC) of state-run Clark International Airport Corp. (CIAC), which develops, operates and manages the Clark Civil Aviation Complex in Pampanga.

Paglinawan, who is currently CIAC’s vice president for finance, will act as the agency’s interim president in lieu of Joshua Bingcang, who served as president since March 17.

Bingcang was appointed by President Ferdinand Marcos Jr. on June 8 as president and chief executive officer of the Bases Conversion and Development Authority (BCDA). He took the place of Aileen Zosa.

CIAC is a subsidiary of the BCDA but is under the Department of Transportation’s policy supervision and operational control.

Paglinawan is a certified public accountant who holds a Master’s degree in management from the University of the Philippines. She had served as state auditor in various government agencies before leading CIAC’s financial team in 2012. She was appointed as CIAC’s vice president for finance in 2020.

CIAC noted that despite the decline in the agency’s revenues due to the privatization of operations of Clark International Airport (CRK), Paglinawan enabled CIAC to pay all of its outstanding bank loans and remit a record amount of dividends to the national treasury.

CIAC is a government corporation that manages the 2,367-hectare Clark Civil Aviation Complex, home to CRK and host to the mixed-use commercial hub Clark Global City and other locators engaged in manufacturing, information and technology, renewable energy, and other non-aviation-related industries.
