Dr. Carlos Cortes recently assumed office as the new manager of the National Food Authority in Negros Oriental at a turnover ceremony held at the NFA office in Dumaguete City, a Philippine Information Agency press release said.
Cortes accepted a symbolic key from outgoing officer-in-charge Francisco Lorico Jr. who is now assigned at the NFA regional office in Cebu City.
Before his assignment, Cortes was manager of NFA in Biliran, Leyte.
A native of Bogo, Cebu, Cortes said he was happy to work in Dumaguete City. "I am back to the region where I came from," he said.
Cortes earned his Bachelor's Degree in Accounting and his Masters of Science in Business Administration and Doctor of Management degrees at the University of Visayas, the press release said.
He has been with NFA since 1987, starting as an accounts examiner, then field clerk, and later as senior grains operator, a rank he currently holds.
On August 23, Cortes paid courtesy calls on local government officials in Dumaguete City, the press release added.*
