Austere A. Panadero has been appointed as the new president of the Zuellig Family Foundation (ZFF), five years after joining the foundation as executive director.
The ZFF board of trustees has great confidence in Panadero’s ability to continue leading ZFF with integrity, competence, and agility toward its mission of achieving faster health outcomes.
Before joining ZFF, Panadero worked for the government for over three decades with most of that time spent at the Department of the Interior and Local Government (DILG), where he served as undersecretary from 2007 until his retirement in 2018. His public service experience has been instrumental in building ZFF’s partnerships with local government units and development organizations.
Ernesto D. Garilao will remain the chairman of ZFF.
