    THE reorganization within the Converge franchise continued as former PBA commissioner Atty. Angelico ‘Chito’ Salud has stepped down as alternate governor, the team announced on Wednesday.

    The FiberXers management relayed the development in a letter to the PBA board of which Salud served as a member as Converge representative during the franchise's maiden season in the league.

    With Salud stepping down, the team said he will no longer be connected in any capacity to the company's basketball operations effective immediately.

    The former PBA chief has been given new assignments in the company, the statement added.

    “The Converge Management wishes to thak Atty. Salud for his guidance and leadership that allowed Converge to successfully enter the PBA,” it said in a statement.


      “Atty. Salud is now tasked to head the development of the Comclark Tech City project in Pampanga and will serve as consultant on special projects in the company.”


      The exit of Salud also meant Converge has no current representative to the all-powerful body after the board rejected the appointment of Pampanga Governor Dennis ‘Delta’ Pineda as team governor.

      Converge has yet to name a new governor in liue of Pineda and a replacement for Salud as alternate governor.

      Team owner Dennis Uy has also appealed the board decision.
