President Ferdinand Marcos Jr. on Friday appointed lawyer Marius Corpus to head the Governance Commission for Government-Owned and Controlled Corporations (GCG).

In a Facebook post, the Presidential Communications Office confirmed Corpus’ appointment, replacing former Sandiganbayan Justice Alex

Quiroz as the GCG chairman, while Brian Keith Hosoka will serve as Gideon de Villa Mortel’s replacement as GCG member.

Corpus formerly worked as an undersecretary of the Department of the Interior and Local Government for Public Safety during the Aquino administration.

Meanwhile, Hosoka was the spokesperson and chief of the Supreme Court Public Information Office before his recent appointment.

The GCG, created by virtue of Republic Act 10149 or the GOCC Governance Act 2011, oversees different government-owned and controlled corporations across the country.

The GCG’s jurisdiction includes 118 GOCCs, consisting of the Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas, local water districts, and research institutions.

Hosaka previously served as PIO chief and Supreme Court spokesman under three chief justices — Lucas P. Bersamin (the current Executive Secretary), Diosdado M. Peralta, and the current Chief Justice Alexander G. Gesmundo.

Before his designation as PIO chief of the Supreme Court, he was a founding partner of Paner Hosaka & Ypil Attorneys-at-Law. He also once served as deputy general counsel of the Integrated Bar of the Philippines.
