Gokongwei son-in-law forced out of Manila Golf Club
Perry Pe, lawyer and partner in Romulo Mabanta, Buenaventura, Sayoc & De Los Angeles Law Firm, has relinquished his post as president of Manila Golf Club allegedly due to disagreements with other board members.
In his column Merry Go Round, Vic Agustin reported that Pe, husband of heiress Robina Gokongwei, gave up his post in Manila Golf even if there were still two months to go before the election of a new set of directors.
Agustin said Pe’s resignation could have been due to a deepening conflict with the group of former Leyte Rep. Martin Romualdez.
George Blaylock, the man behind the Diamond Group, also resigned as VP at Manila Golf.
