IT services and consulting firm Kyte Global marked Co-Founder and Director Alan Alden’s retirement with an event at Muża Restaurant on Friday to celebrate his time at the company.
Mr Alden co-founded Kyte Global with Trevor Axiak in 2007, specialising in remote gaming, PCI Security Standards, internal audit, and data protection services. He leaves the firm in Mr Axiak's hands.
While he has retired, Mr Alden will still be involved in some “specific work and some mentoring”.
The "beginning of a new chapter in his life” was celebrated along with his milestones and achievements during an “evening riddled with mixed emotions”. The event was filled with enchanting music from local band Xarulù.
His adieu “came with a heavy heart” as his presence has been felt at the company for a long time, and “whoever knows Alan, knows that he has always been of service, passionate, and shown dedication towards his work and others”.
Over the course of his career, he has been a point of reference who offered “guidance and undeniable support” to those who sought his help. “He never left a stone unturned and made sure that he achieved his goals and targets, even though challenges may have been in his way,” Kyte Global said.
The company wished him the best of luck as he embarked on his new journey, thanking him for “bringing out the best” in the company.
Apart from his time at Kyte Global, Mr Alden is also a Visiting Senior Lecturer at the Faculty of Economics, Management and Accountancy at University of Malta, as well as General Secretary at Malta Remote Gaming Council.
Specialising in the supply of IT services and consulting to the financial services, gaming and other regulated industries, Kyte Global assists clients in obtaining licenses within their respective areas. It also has specialised compliance teams “dedicated to meet and comply with various regulatory requirements and information security standards”.
