Philippines’ TPB gets new chief

Marie Venus Tan

Veteran tourism official Marie Venus Tan is the new COO of the Philippines Tourism Promotions Board (TPB).

She replaces actor Cesar Montano whose short stint was plagued by scandals, including the shelved multi-million dollar Buhay Carinderia project.

Tan was previously the Department of Tourism’s (DoT) regional director for the Cordillera Administrative Region. She also held various positions with the DoT and TPB – when it was still known as Philippine Convention and Visitors Bureau – both in the Philippines and abroad.
