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.

At ceremonies held last November 24 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.

“This passing of the baton is meaningful in many ways,” said Concepcion. “We are seeing a father passing on to his son the responsibility of leading an important organization, and he must now lead it in a business environment changed by the pandemic.”

“I am sure Samie Lim mentored his son very well and prepared him for the challenges ahead. The PFA is in good hands,” Concepcion said.
