The National Electrification Administration (NEA) has welcomed the appointment of Rene M. Gonzales as new member to the Board of Administrators.
NEA Administrator Edgardo R. Masongsong introduced Gonzales to the agency's officials and employees during Monday's flag-raising ceremony.
President Rodrigo R. Duterte appointed Gonzales as member of the NEA Board of Administrators, to serve the unexpired term of office ending on June 30, 2017, replacing Victor Chiong.
His appointment papers were signed last May 10.

In his brief remarks, the newly-appointed board member expressed his readiness to help NEA achieve its mission and accomplish its goals.
"I am here to help everybody, to help in the accomplishment of our mission. I am here to promote what is needed for us to achieve and most especially to be of assistance to everybody," Gonzales said.
Gonzales currently serves as Security Executive Director at CIRCA Security and Investigation, Inc. He also previously worked at Civil Aviation Authority of the Philippines (CAAP) as Division Chief Intelligence.
He also served in the past as Department Manager for Intelligence and ID and Pass Control Department; and Assistant General Manager for Security and Emergency Services at the Manila International Airport Authority (MIAA).
