In a letter released by Malacañang on Monday (19 September), Marilene C. Acosta
has been appointed as acting Chief Executive Officer of Pag-IBIG Fund, succeeding
Acmad Rizaldy P. Moti as head of the country’s leading home financing agency.
Acosta, who hails from Narvacan, Ilocos Sur, has been with Pag-IBIG Fund since
- A Certified Public Accountant (CPA) and Career Executive Service Officer
(CESO) V, she rose from the ranks since starting her career as an accounting clerk in
Pag-IBIG Fund’s Baguio Regional Office. During her tenure as Pag-IBIG Fund Deputy
CEO for Home Lending from March 2017 to September 2022, the agency released
consistent record-highs in housing loans, which then enabled a record-high number
of members to acquire their own homes.
“I am grateful for the trust that the President Ferdinand Marcos, Jr. and our
Chairperson, DHSUD Secretary Jose Rizalino Acuzar have given me on being appointed
to this post. I also thank outgoing CEO Moti and my fellow Lingkod Pag-IBIG for their
support, as well as the Organization of Socialized and Economic Housing Developers in
the Philippines (OSHDP), Inc. and the Subdivision and Housing Developers Association
(SHDA), Inc. for their endorsements. I assure all of them, as well as our members,
partner-developers, partner-employers and stakeholders, that we at Pag-IBIG Fund
shall remain committed in providing them responsive and excellent service. My more
than 40 years of public service in Pag-IBIG Fund has prepared me well for this post,
and I will put to best use all that I have learned during the past four decades in
ensuring that we continue the fulfillment of our mandates and in providing Tapat na
Serbisyo, Mula sa Puso,” Acosta said.
Outgoing Pag-IBIG Fund Chief Executive Officer Acmad Rizaldy Moti, meanwhile,
hailed Acosta’s appointment. He said that this would ensure continuity in the
agency’s directions towards sustaining and building on the many gains it has
accomplished over the recent years.
“CEO Acosta’s leadership, excellence, integrity, and grit are among the key factors that
have enabled Pag-IBIG Fund to accomplish numerous record-highs and milestones,
particularly in the home financing front. Her appointment shall allow the continuity and
sustainability of Pag-IBIG Fund’s efforts to uplift the lives of all Filipino workers. I truly
wish her and Pag-IBIG all the best,” Moti said.
Moti leaves Pag-IBIG Fund in its strongest-ever state, posting significant increases in
key metrics from 2016 – the year prior to assuming his post as CEO. As of August
2022, the agency has P795.93 billion in total assets, an 81% increase from P439.30
