SCMAP Executive Director
At the last GMM on Nov. 25, 2011, the SCMAP membership present elected the ten directors that would serve in the year 2012. The by-laws provide for a term of only one year, so there is an annual election
The election procedure was revised this year from past practice. Instead of electing the ten directors and the different committee chairpersons simultaneously, only the directors were elected. The committee chairpersons will be appointed by the new Board later.. This procedure allows flexibility and enables good performers to handle each position.
The top 15 vote getters were
|1||Ike Castillo||- Fast Cargo Logistics||LSP #1|
|2.||Arnel Gamboa||- Benby Enterprises|
|3.||Al Lagera||- PLDT|
|4.||Gabby Patag||- TNT Express||LSP #2/ #3|
|5.||Cora Curay||- XVC Logistics||LSP #2/ #3|
|6.||Lito Nepomuceno||- Integrated Commissary|
|7.||Anna Quintos||- Globe Telecom|
|8.||Max Yap||- Oriental & Motolite|
|9.||Dina Pilapil||- IDS Logistics||LSP #4|
|10.||Sherwin Gonzales||- Nestle Phils. Inc.|
|11.||Olive Ramos||- DHL Supply Chain||LSP #5|
|12.||Rene Casas||- JG Summit Petrochemicals|
|13.||Jet Chua||- Messe and Handel|
|14.||Dan Aguinaldo||- Monheim Distributors|
|15.||Lloyd Dizon||- Koldstor Center||LSP #6|
Thr top 15 vote gettters included four LSPs,.Under the election rules, the number of directors coming from the ranks of Logistics Service Providers is limited to a maximum of two, There was an excess of two LSPs. There was also a tie between LSP #2 and LSP #3, which required a tie breaker vote.
After the tie breaker, the ten elected directors elected among themselves the six officers of SCMAP. Below are the results
|President & Director||Ike Castillo||Fast Logistics|
|Vice-President & Director||Gabby Patag||TNT Express Worldwide|
|Secretary & Director||Anna Quintos||Globe Telecom|
|Treasurer & Director||Lito Nepomuceno||ICCI|
|Auditor & Director||Jet Chua||Messe & Handel|
|PRO & Director||Arnel Gamboa||Benby Enterprises|
|Other Directors:||Al Lagera||PLDT|
|Max Yap||Oriental & Motolite|
|Rene Casas||JG Summit Petrochem|
|Sherwin Gonzales||Nestle Phils.|
Note that there are only two new faces, Anna Quintos (Globe) and Sherwyn Gonzales (Nestle). Ike Castillo is by no means new, having been SCMAP President in 2000 and first half of 2001.
The lineup of the 2012 Board and the officers was presented at the Christmas fellowship last Friday, dubbed “A Starry Starry Christmas Fellowship”.
One might notice the absence of Cora Curay, past President for six years. Not to worry. Cora will be here to continue her usual unselfish support and carry SCMAP to its goals. SCMAP will not function without Cora. No one can replace Cora. As written on her plaque for her special recognition award presented at the Christmas fellowship, “In grateful appreciation of the commitment to excellence, exceptional hard work and cooperation towards the successful completion of the SCMAP activities for the year”
The fellowship last Dec. 2 was a merry, noisy and loud fellowship, yet warm and friendly. Seen at the event were SCMAP friends – Mr. & Mrs. Meneleo Carlos (FPI), Mark Ayes, Jet Acena, Marlon Yap (UAP), Tet Gambito (CSPM), past officers Rolie Gonzales, Norman Adriano, Gus Arguelles, Richard Siy, Annette Camangon, friends from shipping lines Sharon Ngo, Bimsy Mapa, Jonathan Tiu, Mario Arnaz, friends from sponsors Jasmin Alvarez, Johana Guevara, Dave Alegado, David Perez, Gilbert Mercado, Joy Caballen, Rose Lozano, Jennifer Tiuhian, Jane Ocava, Ruel Arelas, Ruth Que, Jennifer Divinagracia. Apologies to those whose names have been omitted.
