New President Elected
After 18 solid years with NRBSL, Abundio Quililan Jr. was elected by the Board of Directors as President of the Bank to succeed Andres G. Panganiban effective April 4, 2011.
Panganiban retired as President but was also elected Chairman of the Board. Earlier, Quililan was appointed Chief Executive Officer of the Bank.
Quililan's election was a recognition not only of his unqualified loyalty but also of his embodiment of what the Bank stands for: pro-poor, pro-local economy development, microfinance trailblazer, community and national leadership, excellence, professionalism, integrity, commitment and honesty.
A rural development banker with a global perspective, Quililan's expertise was honed by courses, trainings and conferences on microfinance and corporate social responsibility that he attended in countries such as the United States, Canada, Germany, Japan, England, Greece and Vietnam from 1999 to 2010.
Most intensive were the Microbanking Summer Course in Kronberg, Germany and the Microfinance Course on Financial Projections in Washington D.C.
In 1993, Quililan, then fresh out of UP Diliman with a degree in Political Science, joined NRBSL even before it got its license to operate as a rural bank in 1994. Inquisitive and daring, he started as a researcher then went on to become credit investigator, appraiser, and credit analyst.
He pushed his limits and excelled every step of the way as relationship manager, manager, assistant vice president, chief executive officer, executive vice president, and now president.
Board Chairman Panganiban expressed his elation, full support and confidence with Quililan at the helm.
Interview with Jun Quililan
How do you feel being elected as president of the Bank?
To quote Spiderman: "With great power comes greater responsibilities." I have yet to internalize everything, though. But really, I don't mind the work. The challenge is always up there, and I devote the same full attention in my work as in others.
Did you ever hope or dream of becoming Bank president one day?
I am no big dreamer. I live each day as it comes. I take this task not as a source of pride or arrogance but with a purpose. There is a reason for everything and, maybe, this is why the role fell on my lap. [more...]
