MEMO TO :  THE UNIVERSITY COMMUNITY

RE : NEW MEMBER OF THE ADZU BOARD OF TRUSTEES


I am happy to inform the community of the election of MS RUTH YU OWEN to the AdZU Board of Trustees during the Corporation/BOT meeting on 24 February 2018.

 

Ms Yu-Owen is our alumna (Bachelor of Science in Commerce Major in Accounting, 1986) and the founding benefactor of our SIU HUA YU - Pan Kada Dia Food Program. More recently, she has been instrumental in setting up the AdZU RISE Campaign which hopes to raise funds for our rebuilding and institutional advancement efforts.


Ms Yu-Owen is presently the President and Chief Executive Officer of PHILCARBON, a dynamic young company with a growing portfolio of renewable energy projects at various stages of development in the wind, hydropower, biomass and geothermal sectors. She and her team were among the earliest players in the renewable energy industry with wind power projects. She is deemed one of the first female leaders in the energy sector.

 

Her other related engagements include the following: senior positions in Upgrade Energy Philippines and Megawatt Clean Energy; Co-Chairperson of the Energy Committee of the EUPhilippine Business Network; and Vice President for external affairs of the Philippines Energy Efficiency Alliance (PE2). 

 

Among her many socio-civic involvements are the All-In-One Mission and Lingkod Timog organized by the Philippine Marines for the children in conflict affected areas of Sulu and the poor areas in Mindanao. She is also active in the Art Living Foundation, an International Non-Governmental Organization present in more than 150 countries which conduct trauma relief programs to disaster-stricken areas.

 

I thank Ms Owen for her generosity in sharing their time and leadership in the service of the mission of the Ateneo de Zamboanga University.

 


I also take this opportunity to thank ATTY JOSE MANUEL MAMAUAG who served in the Board for three terms (2009-2018) and whose participation in the Board these past many years helped significantly in moving the University forward in its mission.
