Team Pilipinas’ Butch Ramirez to be hailed as PSA Awards Executive of the Year

The man behind the success of Team Philippines in the 30th Southeast Asian Games will have his share of the limelight in the SMC-PSA (Philippine Sportswriters Association) Annual Awards Night.

Team Philippines Chef De Mission William ‘Butch’ Ramirez will be honored with the Executive of the Year honor during the March 6 gala at the Centennial Hall of the Manila Hotel, for his stintat the helm of the country’s successful campaign in the biennial meet.

Ramirez — who’s also the chairman of the Philippine Sports Commission (PSC) — is credited for steering the Philippines to regaining the overall championship of the SEA Games after 14 years.

The 1,115-strong Filipino athletes won a record haul of 149 gold, 117 silver, and 121 bronze medals — the most the Philippines ever had since it began participating in the meet in 1977.

The list includes the likes of Manny V. Pangilinan, Ramon S. Ang, Wilfred Uytengsu, Hans Sy, Ricky Vargas, Chito Salud, Jude Echauz Dan Palami, and Philip Ella Juico.
