A recipient of the Ten Outstanding Young Men (TOYM) of the Philippines award for investment and international finance and the President Manuel A.

Sharp, witty and articulate, he was a prized debater while a UP law student and garnered such National Presidential awards as the President Ramon Magsaysay and President Carlos P. Garcia Gold Medals for his forensic prowess.

More fine feathers were to be added on his cap as he was elected in 1999 National Chairman of the League of Provinces of the Philippines where he was adviser of the league from 1995 to 1998. He was also the first president of the league from 1988 to 1991 during which he participated intensely in crafting the Local Government Code. In 1998, he was also chosen as Chairman of the Regional Development Council. As such he wields considerable clout in designing the developmental course of the entire Bicol Region. Presently he is the National Chairman of the Federation of Regional Development Councils of the Philippines.
