Commodore Philip L. Cacayan, who has served the NFEM for two years since November 5, 2010, is now designated as deputy chief of ctaff for personnel of the Armed Forces of the Philippines (AFP).

Taking over the helm is Commodore Isabelo H. Gador, NFEM commander, who assured that the NFEM under his leadership will continue to work hand-in-hand for the welfare of the public.


The turnover ceremony was held at the NFEM Multi-Purpose Covered Court, Naval Station Felix Apolinario, Panacan in Davao City.

Gador added that as the newly installed commander, he will first look into the morale of his personnel so to determine their attitude on their work and seek for more development on the facilities of the naval forces.

"Overall, maganda naman talaga ang performance ng naval forces dito and I would do my best to maintain what Commodore Cacayan has started. We will maximize our resources in order to carry out our mission effectively, economically, and efficiently," Gador said.

Gador thanked Cacayan and the Philippine Navy for their full trust and support given to him. He added that he will not fail his predecessor.
