Eisma, four others take oath as SBMA officials before President Duterte

Lawyer Wilma T. Eisma took her oath of office as administrator of the Subic Bay Metropolitan Authority (SBMA) before President Rodrigo Roa Duterte in a mass ceremony held in Malacañang Monday (January 9).

Benny Diaz Antiporda, Maria Cecilia Bobadilla Bitare, Tomas Lahom III and Stefani Creer Saño also took their oath as members of the SBMA board of directors.

The SBMA officials were among over 200 appointees who composed the second batch of new government officials sworn in by the president.

Eisma, was appointed by President Duterte as the new SBMA administrator in December 21 last year, replacing Roberto V. Garcia.

Garcia was SBMA administrator from 2011 until his resignation in October last year. He also served as chair of the SBMA board of directors before he was succeeded by Martin Diño.

Prior to her appointment, Eisma was an executive of Philip Morris Phils. Manufacturing, Inc. She was also one of the 8,000 volunteers who initially managed and protected the facilities of the Subic Bay Freeport after the US Navy pulled out of the former US Naval base in 1992. (SNL)
