Bases Conversion and Development Authority (BCDA) President and Chief Executive Officer (CEO) Engr. Joshua M. Bingcang was commended by his hometown Mexico, Pampanga for his unwavering dedication to public service and exemplary leadership, enabling him to rise from the ranks.
The Sangguniang Bayan of Mexico on September 11, 2023 presented Engr. Bingcang a copy of Municipal Resolution No. 138-2023, which expresses the municipality’s “pride and honor” for the recent appointment of Bingcang to the top management position of BCDA.
This comes on the heels of the Angeles City Council’s resolution last month, commending Engr. Bingcang for bringing pride to the province of Pampanga.
“Engr. Bingcang has performed vital tasks that prove his commitment and love for Pampanga and the Metro Clark areas through his roles in the planning and implementation of key projects,” a resolution issued by the Sangguniang Bayan of Mexico read.
A testament to his commitment to public service, Engr. Bingcang led the completion of some of BCDA’s biggest projects, which serve as major social and economic growth drivers in Northern and Central Luzon. These are the completion of the Philippines’ longest toll road, the Subic-Clark-Tarlac Expressway; the development of Clark Freeport Zone and the first phase of the National Government Administrative Center in New Clark City; as well as the expansion and modernization of Clark International Airport.
“We at BCDA will not be able to achieve all these accomplishments without the help of our public and private sector partners, like the Municipality Government of Mexico. A lot still needs to be done. We would like to get your continued support as we move forward with our One Clark vision, which will further put Pampanga and the rest of Northern and Central Luzon into the center of investment and development,” Engr. Bingcang said.
Climbing the career ladder, Engr. Bingcang started working at BCDA as Project Development Officer III in 1996. He then held various positions on development and project management through the years until his promotion as Senior Vice President for Conversion and Development Group in 2019. In March 2023, he was appointed as President and CEO of the Clark International Airport Corporation, a subsidiary of the BCDA.
Resuming his 27th year of working for the institution, President Ferdinand R. Marcos, Jr. appointed Engr. Bingcang as BCDA President and CEO. He took his oath before Executive Secretary Lucas P. Bersamin on June 6 in Malacañan.
Born and raised in Mexico, Pampanga, Engr. Bingcang is a licensed electrical engineer and holds a Master’s degree in Business Administration from the University of the Philippines. He also attended an Urban Policy and Governance program at the Nanyang Technological University, and trained at the Harvard Kennedy School in Public-Private Partnerships in Infrastructure.
