Balanga City—Engineer Wilfredo Mallari, a native of this city, is now full-fledged regional director of the Department of Public Works and Highways in Region 4-B or Mimaropa.
He took his oath last week before Public Works Secretary Mark Villar at the department’s headquarters in Manila.
Mallari was appointed the officer-in-charge regional director of DPWH Mimaropa early last year. He was also assistant regional director of the department for a year before being promoted to OIC.
He has the distinction of being the first Bataan native to become regional director of DPWH 4B.
Mallari was district engineer of Bataan’s first district for 14 years and of the Las Piñas-Muntinlupa district in Metro Manila for three years.
He rose from the department’s ranks, starting as a part-time civil engineering aide in 1975 while studying at the Adamson University in Manila. He became a regular employee of DPWH, then the Ministry of Public Works and Highways, in December 1977 after graduating and passing the Board of Civil Engineers in April of the same year.
