The Cultural Center of the Philippines has announced the appointment of its new president, businesswoman and philanthropist Kaye Tinga.

She will assume the presidency on June 1, 2024, taking on the main responsibility of the operations of  CCP, working closely with management.

Her presidency was approved by the CCP Board of Trustees, following the election during the board meeting on May 15, 2024. She became part of the board after her appointment by Malacañang Palace in April 2024.

She replaced early childhood educator Michelle Nikki Junia, who served as president ad interim from September 2023 to March 2024.

Championing Filipino design, Tinga is co-founder and co-chairperson of the Red Charity Gala, a prestigious annual event that aims to celebrate local fashion through the works of renowned Filipino designers like Dennis Lustico, Furne One, Michael Cinco, Cary Santiago, Ezra Santos, Jojie Lloren, Lesley Mobo, Chito Vijandre, Joey Samson, Rajo Laurel, and Ivarluski Aseron. The gala raises substantial funds for charitable causes, including for the Philippine Red Cross.

A business economics graduate of the University of the Philippines-Diliman, with an MBA from Fordham University, she is the co-founder and managing director of W/17, a home furnishing and accessories brand that collaborated with craftsmen from various regions across the Philippines, including Cebu, Cavite, Pampanga, and Dumaguete. Her brand has been promoting local artisans, cultural skills preservation, and economic development.

Nurturing the next generation of creative talents, Tinga serves as board member of MINT College, a business and creative arts college and senior high school that provides an innovative learning experience and empowers young people through its pioneering programs in music business management, multimedia arts, and film and video.

Married to former Taguig mayor and representative Freddie Tinga, and mother to four, Tinga balances her professional and philanthropic activities with family life, and interests in design and travel.

The CCP Board of Trustees is headed by Dr. Jaime C. Laya, with Margie Moran Floirendo and Carissa Oledan Coscolluela as vice chairpersons.
