[/caption] Crisostomo?s previous employment as TV reporter and assistant press secretary during the term of former Pres. Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo is also expected to serve him well in his new role where vital government connections are crucial in getting the job done. He is taking up the post vacated by Alejandro ?Buds? Melchor III, who is now the deputy executive director of the Information and Communications Technology Office (ICTO) of the Department of Science and Technology. Crisostomo just got back in the country after spending 21 days abroad doing speaking engagements for two IT-BPO trade missions in Colombia and Australia. In other IT-related personnel movements, NGO executive Al Alegre has left the Foundation of Media Alternatives (FMA) to join the ICTO as one of the key officials in the office of ICTO deputy executive director Monchito Ibrahim. Veteran executive Manny Portugal, on other hand, quietly left IBM Philippines last year to take up the role as channels manager for virtualization firm VMware. It was also around September last year when ex-Intel Philippines marcom manager RJ Maclang joined Samsung Philippines as corporate B2B group head. In January this year, former Dell Philippines country manager for enterprise sector Ricky Lopez quit his post to assume a new role at Microsoft Philippines. He was joined at the software firm roughly the same time by former Oracle Philippines executive Joel Garcia, who went back to the Philippines after spending time working at Microsoft?s headquarters in Redmond, Washington. If Microsoft gained some key talents, it also lost senior marketing executive Liezl Milan, who has relocated to Singapore to work for Apple?s regional HQ. ]]>
