Presidential Adviser for Entrepreneurship and Go Negosyo founder Joey Concepcion welcomed the new leadership of the Philippine Franchise Association (PFA), saying this comes at a critical time for the PFA and its membership as MSMEs now are adjusting to a post-pandemic business environment.

“This passing of the baton is meaningful in many ways, as the new PFA must now guide its members in adapting to a business environment changed by the pandemic,” he said.

At the turnover ceremony held last 24 November at the Manila Polo Club, outgoing PFA Chairman Richard Sanz turned over the chairmanship of the organization to Sherill Quintana.

Also sworn in was incoming PFA President Sam Christopher Lim, who replaces Quintana as the PFA’s president.

Mr. Lim is the son of PFA Chairman Emeritus Dr. Samie Lim.
