Founder’s grandson takes over as president of Angeles university
A grandson of the founder of Holy Angel University in Angeles City is taking over as its interim president, according to the school’s board of trustees.
Leopoldo Valdes Jr., the grandson of Juan Nepomuceno, is succeeding Dr. Luis Maria R. Calingo as HAU president, the board announced a day after the necrological service marking the end of the school’s mourning period for the late president.
In a memorandum to the HAU community, the board chairperson, Sister Josefina Nepomuceno, OSB said that the Board was “grateful that Mr. Valdes has accepted our invitation to serve the University in this capacity (and) we are confident that with his multidimensional leadership, we will successfully work our way through these unprecedented and challenging times and bring an already great institution to even greater heights.”
Valdes is a chemical engineering graduate of the De La Salle University and holds an MBA in business strategy from Simon Fraser University in Canada and a Masters in Management in human resource management from the City University of Seattle.
He is currently pursuing his doctorate at the SAIDI Graduate School of Organization Development.
Valdes worked as senior IT officer at the United Nations in Austria and at an international atomic energy agency in Vienna. He also taught at Brighton College Canada, Ashton College,
University of Phoenix, and City University of Seattle.
In his home base in Vancouver, he was executive director for two nonprofit organizations serving local businesses and immigrants from the Philippines.
