Prior to his current position, BGen Quidilla was the Assistant Division Commander of the 2nd Infantry Division in Tanay, Rizal.
BGen Quidilla was born in Banga, South Cotabato on April 22, 1961. Generals Año, Visaya and Gan and Quidilla were classmates at the Philippine Military Academy Class of 1983.
"I am very optimistic that BGen Quidilla will continue the efforts of his predecessor, Major General Depayso, in the attainment of a more peaceful Bicol Region," said SOLCOM Chief LtGen Visaya.
He said Quidilla's expertise in counter insurgency will infuse new approaches in AFP's IPSP "Bayanihan" in Bicol Region.
