Mediterranean Maritime Hub Finance has announced the appointment of Anthony Bonnici to its Board of Directors, replacing Joshua Zammit, who did not stand for re-election.
With effect from Monday, Mr Bonnici is also taking Mr Zammit’s place as member of the Audit Committee of the Company in his capacity as an independent, non-executive director.
The company describes Mr Bonnici as a qualified banker through a Financial Studies Diploma – a degree level qualification obtained via the Chartered Institute of Banking.
“He has extensive expertise in retail and corporate baking, financing of international trade, risk management, assets/liabilities management and corporate governance”, it commented.
Mr Bonnici started his career at Bank of Valletta, where he worked for 31 years, moving up the ranks from clerical duties to Senior Executive Officer. During those years, he managed the credit department of the Bank’s main branch, before helping to set up the Bank’s Corporate Centre.
He moved to BNF Bank (formerly Banif Bank) in 2007, where he was presented with the challenge of designing and starting a commercial bank from scratch.
Announcing his appointment, Mediterranean Maritime Hub Finance also thanked his predecessor for his service.
Mr Zammit will take on a new role as a director on the Board of Directors of the Guarantor, MMH Holdings Limited, and of the key operating company within the MMH Group, MMH Malta Limited, together with Ann Fenech and Sergio Vella, who also take on the role of directors with the said two companies.
