MANILA, Philippines – Phoenix Petroleum president and chief executive officer Dennis Uy is another PBA personality to serve in President Duterte’s administration after his appointment as presidential adviser on sports.

Uy, team owner of the Phoenix Fuel Masters, had his first appearance as government sports official in the sendoff ceremony for Rio Olympic-bound Philippine athletes in Malacanang Palace on Monday.

“We take pride and honor on the appointment of one of our team owners to such position giving him the opportunity to further push the development of sports for the youth,” said PBA commissioner Chito Narvasa.

“It speaks highly of Mr. Dennis Uy and his commitment to sports,” Narvasa added.

Another PBA personality, four-time PBA MVP winner Ramon Fernandez, was appointed to the five-man board of the Philippine Sports Commission.

Fernandez serves as one of four commissioners under returning PSC chairman Butch Ramirez.

Uy is a Davaoeno and sports patron who’s supported the Junior NBA and WNBA Philippines, muay thai and car racing, among others.

The 43-year-old sportsman/businessman is a graduate of La Salle Taft.
