Andre Schembri, a heavyweight in the digital community, has joined NIU and ANCHOVY plc (both companies owned by 9H Capital) as Head Technical Ops (HTO).
He joins the development team, as part of over 70 people working in the group. His focus will be on the frontend and DevOps functions.
With 10 years at BRND WGN, starting as a web developer and working through the ranks to Head of Tech whilst leading a team of UX/UI designers and developers, Mr Schembri was involved in various functions from business development, project scoping and account management on important local brands.
He shared his thoughts on this move: “NIU’s focus on technology will allow me to expand my knowledge and use my experience and skills to push the product to the next level, giving our clients better value. From my first few weeks I can already feel an impressive drive and ambition to keep growing an already strong portfolio of clients.”
Group Chief Technology Officer (CTO) Omar Tanti was equally excited about this move and said: “Andre deserves a big welcome! We are thrilled that he has joined us as HTO and are positive that his expertise, knowledge, dedication, and strong qualifications will contribute significantly to the company’s success and development.”
“This move reinforces our deepest commitment to continuously add more value and expertise to our clients,” Mr Tanti added.
2022 saw the landmark merger of digital marketing agency ANCHOVY. and web development company NIU, a pivotal moment for Malta’s maturing digital sector, as the two market leaders combined their operations into Malta’s largest digital alliance. The group has recently cemented its position as a leading provider to the blue-chip community in the MENA region.
