Mr. Padua joined ORIX METRO more than 28 years ago serving in increasing levels of leadership, including as Center Head of Northern Luzon and the Countryside Branches Group.

“With his depth of experience in leasing, dealer management, and operational strategy; his passion for serving customers and his commitment to empowering Micro, Small and Medium Enterprises (MSMEs); and his track record of developing and inspiring his team, Mr. Padua is the right choice to continue and build on what Antonio R. Ocampo, Jr. and senior management have done in leading ORIX METRO towards a more sustainable growth,” said Anthony Paul C. Yap, Chairman of ORIX METRO’s Board of Directors.

“On behalf of the Board, I also want to thank Mr. Ocampo for his outstanding leadership during ORIX METRO’s years of reinvention. He spearheaded ORIX METRO’s pivot post-pandemic towards a stronger foundation for the future,” added Yap.

“ORIX METRO is a trailblazing company in the leasing and finance industry and plays an important role in the local MSME sector,” said Angelo Z. Padua, ORIX METRO’s incoming President. “Throughout my career, I have supported small and medium businesses and entrepreneurs. I am proud to take the baton from Mr. Ocampo and excited to have the opportunity to continue working with ORIX METRO’s talented and committed team to maintain its culture of malasakit and draw on its unique capabilities to deliver groundbreaking and sustainable leasing and financial products and services to serve the best interests of our clients.”
