MANILA, Philippines — Carlo Singson is stepping down as associate vice president and managing director of NBA Philippines, it was announced Tuesday.

Singson also served as senior director, global marketing partnerships and country manager for the Philippines during the 22 years he spent with the NBA.


“It’s overwhelming to see how much the NBA has grown in the Philippines over my tenure,” said Singson. “As a lifelong NBA fan, I am grateful to have contributed to the vision of making the NBA a global league and will continue to cheer on the NBA from the sidelines.”

“Carlo has been an integral part of the NBA family and his wide-ranging efforts have led the business to achieve significant growth in the Philippines over the past decade,” said NBA Executive Vice President and Managing Director of NBA Asia Scott Levy.


“We thank Carlo for his contributions to the NBA and wish him the best in the next chapter of his career.”

It was under Singson’s watch when the NBA opened its first office in the Philippines in 2016, three years after the league staged its first-ever preseason game in the country.

Singson also led the launching of the league’s youth development program, Jr. NBA Philippines.

As managing director, Singson introduced new ways for Filipino fans to catch the games live through the NBA Philippines’ Facebook and Twitter accounts.
