Manuel V. Pangilinan, chairman and CEO of Meralco, stated that Rubio’s appointment is a strategic move as MGen seeks to capitalize on growth opportunities that will deliver long-term value to the company, local communities, and the national economy.

“We are eager to leverage his fresh perspectives and innovative ideas as we strive for MGen to be a dependable partner in achieving inclusive and sustainable economic growth,” Pangilinan said.
