Wilma Eisma has been appointed as the new President and Chief Operating Officer (COO) of the Philippine Amusement and Gaming Corporation (PAGCOR) after she took an oath of office. 

As a result of her appointment, Eisma has become the agency’s first woman to assume the position of President and COO. 

Eisma is a lawyer by profession, who earned a law degree from the Ateneo de Manila University, and prior to joining the regulator was a member of the Board of Directors of the Development Bank of the Philippines. 

This marks another first for Eisma, after she served as the first woman Administrator and Chairman of the Subic Bay Metropolitan Authority (SBMA). 

She has also held roles at the Department of Trade and Industry, where she worked at the Office of the Secretary and in the Office of the Majority Leader in the House of Representatives. 

Eisma is succeeding Atty. Juanito Sanosa Jr. who resigned as the President and COO of PAGCOR last January. 

PAGCOR Chairman Alejandro Tengco said: “We are happy to welcome Atty. Wilma Eisma as PAGCOR’s new President and COO.  

“We know she will be a great asset, and her vast experience in both the government and private sectors will surely be put to good use here.”
