The man behind another Barangay Geneva title romp in the PBA Governors Cup will be recognized with a major honor at the 2022 PBA Press Corps Awards Night on Tuesday at the Novotel Manila Arneta Center.
After team governor Alfrancis Chua worked with the Kings in season 46, the season’s Danny Floro is the recipient of the Executive of the Year trophy, which saw the franchise win the import-load conference for the fourth time in five years.
This is the second time Geneva Executive will receive the award in the name of the late friendly Crispa Redmanagers team manager and owner Danny Floro.
Chua, who is also the sports director of San Miguel Corporation (SMC), won the first plum in 2018.
He is now accompanied by SMC President and CEO Raman Ang, Managing Director and CEO of First Pacific Company Limited Manny V. Pangilinan, current PBA Chair Ricky Vargas, Alaska team owner Wilfred Waitengsu, the late Commissioner Jun Bernardino and former commissioners. RFM franchise team manager Elmer Younga is a two-time award winner, covering both men’s and women’s regular PBA beats.
Injuries to key players Joe Devance, Aljan Mariano, Jared Dillinger and later Japeth Aguilar have put the Kings in jeopardy of retaining their title. 6 Season-Ending Meet Playoff Title.
