Dungo takes indefinite leave

August 17, 2013

PHILIPPINE Volleyball Federation (PVF) President Generoso Dungo has formally filed an indefinite leave to primarily concentrate on his business and other personal interests.

PVF Secretary-General Rustico Camangian said that vice president Karl Geoffrey Chan will automatically assume the presidency while Dungo is on-leave based on its constitution and by-laws.

“He (Dungo) has no choice. The new interim board of administration will now run the PVF,” Camangian told The Manila Times.

A Board Resolution No. 05-2013 signed by nine of the 14 board members supports Dungo’s decision, according to Camangian.

For his part, Dungo said that he has a lot of things to do in business in order to recover. “I need to focus on my business first. I know this is a hard decision but I need to do it.”

Dungo has been criticized by the entire volleyball community after failing to form a team in the recently-concluded Southeast Asian Zonal women’s volleyball held in Vietnam.
