Mohammad Khalid Quibranza Dimaporo is an economist, agriculturist, businessman, and the 7th Governor of the Province of Lanao del Norte.

Born on the 16th of February 1980 in San Juan, Metro Manila, Governor Dimaporo is the eldest of Abdullah Dimaporo & Imelda Quibranza’s five children. He completed high school in Brent International School Baguio and was convinced by his father to study Economics in the United States. In 2002 he attained his Bachelor’s Degree in Development Economics, but continued into a competitive Graduate Studies program. He graduated in 2003 with a Masters Degree in International Development Economics at the University of San Francisco in California, USA. The recognition he received in the program earned him a place in the National Dean’s List and was advised by his professor to continue into a Doctoral Program. He continued as PhD candidate at Texas A&M University, considering that it ranked as a leader in Agricultural Economics. However, he was called back to the Philippines by the family.

Upon his return to the Philippines he engaged in several business organizations in the field of agribusiness and finance. As head of Muslim Diversified Agriculture and A&A Ranches he envisioned Lanao del Norte to compete against the durian production of Davao and become the largest source of halal meat in the Philippines. This prompted the development work for the Dimaporo Durian Plantation and increase in breeding stock of the A&A Herds.

In 2005 he joined Lanao Foundation as the Vice President of the Dairy Division. Lanao Foundation aspired to transform Lanao del Norte into the dairy capital of the Philippines. Under his leadership the foundation imported a base herd of 1,000 dairy cattle crossbred for the tropics. These animals are maintained in 600-hectare dairy farms, Sultan Naga Dimaporo. His collaboration with Land-O-Lakes Foundation and the USDA Food for Progress Program brought in millions for a milk feeding program and development assistance for Lanao Foundation.

His experience in finance started in 2005 when he was given the Chairmanship of GSIS Family Savings Bank. Before his term as chairman, the bank lost millions annually. With a new chairman and president, in his person, the bank quickly turned and gained around 10 million pesos in revenue the first year, reaching more than 30 million the following year. To date, the bank is working to infuse 3 billion of fresh capital from an interested third party investor.

Governor Dimaporo decided to run in the 2007 elections in order to ensure the delivery of Lanao del Norte’s Vision 2020, for Lanao del Norte to become a globally competitive agro–industrial community of God–loving, ecology conscious, culturally diverse people working together in peace and harmony to achieve equity and prosperity by the year 2020. His thrust to attain Vision 2020 is embodied in his tripartite agenda: Social Programs, Livelihood, and Infrastructure. Essentially, develop and protect the people; provide them with jobs and livelihood; and deliver the basic needs – road access, potable water, and electricity.
