President Ferdinand Marcos, Jr. appointed Arrey A. Perez as the new president and chief executive officer of Clark International Airport Corp. (CIAC).

Perez on September 14 was also appointed as member of the CIAC Board.

Perez replaces vice president for finance Nancy Paglinawan, who was appointed officer-in-charge last June.

Also appointed in the CIAC Board was Victor Manuel, Jr.

Before his appointment, Perez was senior vice president for corporate services of the Bases Conversion and Development Authority (BCDA).

CIAC is a subsidiary of the BCDA. The Department of Transportation exercises policy supervision and operational control over CIAC.

A government corporation, CIAC manages the 2,367-hectare Clark Civil Aviation Complex, home to Clark International Airport (CRK) as well as the mixed-use business district Clark Global City, and several locators in cargo and aviation-related businesses.

In a statement, CIAC said Perez’s corporate skills, business acumen and inclusive leadership are qualities the national government needs in realizing the full potential of the Clark aviation complex surrounding the airport.

He is a certified public accountant and holds a post-graduate Diploma in Urban and Regional Planning from the University of the Philippines, Master’s degree in Public Administration, and completed an executive training program on Public-Private Partnerships at the Harvard Kennedy School.

CIAC said Perez’s expertise at the BCDA and proven track record of accomplishments of almost two decades “will surely steer the aviation complex surrounding the Clark airport as a global name in investments, logistics and tourism in the Asia-Pacific region.”

As senior official of BCDA, Perez was involved in the master planning of former military base lands into economic hubs, including Bonifacio Global City, Mckinley Hills, Newport City, the Subic-Clark-Tarlac Expressway.

He directly managed world-class sports facilities at the New Clark City, and promoted John Hay in Baguio and Poro Point in La Union as primary eco-tourism hubs.

CIAC said Perez was also involved in helping transform CRK as the country’s alternative gateway.
