MANILA- President Rodrigo Duterte has approved the nomination of Rolando Macasaet as president and general manager of state-run pension fund Government Service Insurance System (GSIS), a Cabinet official confirmed Tuesday.

Executive Secretary Salvador Medialdea confirmed the nomination of Macasaet, who served as head of the pension fund from June 2018 to July 2019.

It was only last year when Macasaet was designated as president and general manager of GSIS.

Prior to his current post, Macasaet served at the helm of the Philippine National Construction Corporation and Skyway Corporation, among others.

Last month, Duterte designated former chief justice Lucas Bersamin as a member of the GSIS Board of Trustees and subsequently approved his appointment as chairman of the government-owned insurance system.
