Since being appointed as President and serving as the Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of MPW on 31 December 2018, Erie focused on introducing institutional changes that will strengthen the organization and pursued laying down the roadmap to ensure the long-term success of MPW and its subsidiaries. Under the leadership of Erie, MPW launched the operations of Metro Pacific Iloilo Water, Inc., which aims to provide reliable and safe water to the Ilonggos. Another milestone achieved on Erie’s watch is the commencement of operations of Metro Pacific Dumaguete Water Services, Inc., which is seen to bring lasting improvements to the water services in Dumaguete City and nearby communities. We wish to thank Erie for his immense contributions to Metro Pacific Water and the water sector in the Philippines.

He also headed the Light Rail Manila Corporation from 2016 to 2017 as its President and CEO. He likewise held the position of President and CEO of Maynilad Water Services, Inc. from 2007 to 2010, and Chairman and President of Bases Conversion and Development Authority from 1998 to 2002.
