Eisma steps down as SBMA chief

Subic Bay Freeport – SBMA Chairman and Administrator Atty. Wilma Eisma steps down as head of the Subic Bay Metropolitan Authority effective today March 1, 2022 citing health reason in her “STATEMENT ON RESIGNATION AS SBMA CHAIRMAN AND ADMINISTRATOR”, issued March 01, 2022.

The statement read:

All Stakeholders of the Subic Bay Freeport Zone:

I’d like to inform everyone that I am stepping down as Chairman and Administrator of the Subic Bay Metropolitan Authority effective today, March 1, 2022.

Unbeknown to most of you, I have given my notice of resignation as SBMA chief as early as October 2021 to President Duterte to focus on my health and family. At that time, President Duterte did not acquiesce to my decision, but at this time, thankfully, he favored my renewed request.

And so, I now leave the Subic Bay Freeport with a happy heart, knowing that, together, we have set realistic goals, and achieved them to give Subic Bay a better, more sustainable future. And without a doubt, we have made our mark well.

Thank you then for your support and pride in what we have done in the five years that we worked together. It will always be my honor not only to be the first woman appointed to this job, but also to be one leader who proved that together, the stakeholders of Subic Bay will always be stronger, and will always overcome.

Maraming salamat po sa inyong lahat!

Very truly yours, WILMA T. EISMA

Chairman and Administrator
