The eldest son of Ramon S. Ang, president and COO of conglomerate San Miguel Corp. (SMC), has been elected on Thursday as a member of the company’s board of directors.
John Paul L. Ang, currently Eagle Cement Corp.’s president and CEO, was elected as the new director of the country’s largest conglomerate. He is replacing former Development Bank of the Philippines president Reynaldo G. David, who died last December.
David was an independent director of San Miguel since 2016.
San Miguel said John Paul has all the qualifications and none of the disqualifications to fill in the vacancy in the board.
“He brings with him years of top managerial experience in the cement industry in the Philippines and Malaysia, beginning with experience in business operations to top level management decision making, which experiences allowed him to be equipped with the necessary skills to lead their cement business,” the company said.
Eagle Cement is the company led by his father, Ramon Ang.
John Paul graduated with a degree on Interdisciplinary Studies at the Ateneo de Manila University.
