MANILA, Philippines — The Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) has welcomed the appointment of its new commissioner, Rogelio Quevedo.

Quevedo replaced Hubert Dominic Guevara who passed away last March after a brief stint as SEC commissioner.

“We give our warmest welcome to Atty. Quevedo, whose decades of experience in corporate law and the government service will help the commission navigate new and emerging trends in the business sector,” SEC chairperson Emilio Aquino said.

Quevedo previously headed the country’s Office of the Government Corporate Counsel, which serves as the principal legal office of all government-owned or controlled corporations, their subsidiaries and other corporate offsprings.

The SEC said Quevedo had also served other government offices in various capacities, including the Metropolitan Waterworks and Sewerage System Board, Presidential Management Staff and Office of the Ombudsman.

He entered the government service following his retirement from a two-year stint as a senior executive in a telecommunications company.

Quevedo was also a professor in commercial and civil law at the University of the Philippines College of Law and supervising lawyer at the college’s Office of the Legal Aid.

He has a degree in economics from UP, where he also finished his law studies.

The new SEC commissioner completed his Master of Laws from the Louisiana State University and his Doctor of the Science of Jurisprudence from the Tulane University in New Orleans, Louisiana.
