President Aquino recently reappointed Froilan Tampinco as president of the National Power Corp. ‘Lani’ is an active member of the Brotherhood of Christian Businessmen and Professionals (BCLP 4 – BCBP Baguio) now serving as a member of BCBP’s Board of Trustees.
BOT Chairman Bobby Atendido commended Lani on his reappointment: “You make us all proud Lani. Congratulations and continue to do the right thing. We will all pray for you. God bless you, Gladys and your family.”
Lani Tampinco first assumed the leadership of Napocor in September 2008 after serving as vice president for asset management and electricity trading group of the Power Sector Assets and Liabilities Management Corp. He also served as Napocor vice president for sales and services for a year from February 2003 to 2004. He graduated with a Bachelor of Science degree in chemical engineering from the Saint Louis University in Baguio City in 1966.
During a BCBP Metro Manila assembly last August 2010 Lani shared his feelings about his government service. “When the Lord gives you an assignment, he expects a lot, and you should expect it goes with great responsibilities. Since I had held this position during the previous administration, I was prepared to turn over and ensure a smooth transition to the new appointee of the present government. It’s not easy to serve in government, and since my term was over, I was gladly looking forward to giving up the position and continuing my service in other ways. However, unknown to me, my new boss was also a member of BCBP and, although my position has yet to be confirmed, I am ready to serve.
“I believe it’s easy to love people when you like them, but difficult to do when you are raring to get back at them. But I know that it is expected that pains, hurts, misunderstandings and challenges come while in government service. So in my prayers I ask the Lord that I, together with my brothers and sisters in the BCBP, be ready to support change and also to be part of that change. Let us take comfort in Pope John Paul II’s favorite verse, “Be not afraid.”
