Business Profile

I started off my professional career with PwC Malta as an auditor. In 1995, I joined Simonds Farsons Cisk plc (“SFC”) as Chief Accountant of a subgroup operating franchised food outlets. Subsequently, I was appointed Group Financial Services Manager and in 2004, following the acquisition of the food importation arm, I was assigned the key task of integrating the newly acquired company’s finance systems within the Group. I was appointed Financial Controller whilst retaining the overall finance responsibility of the franchised foods business.

In 2005, I was appointed SFC’s Group Chief Financial Officer (CFO) that included the responsibility for the Group’s overall financial management, direction and governance as well as the Group’s Credit Control, Information Technology and Business Services. I also served as a member of the Group Executive Board and sat on the Boart of 10 companies within the SFC Group.

In 2017, I was appointed Chief Executive Officer of Trident Estates plc, a property group that was spun-off as a separate listed entity on the Malta Stock Exchange in 2018. I spearheaded the development of Trident Park, a €66 million green office campus developed on a landmark Art Deco industrial facility, creating a space that embraces both contemporary design and state-of-the-art technology while also preserving and even celebrating the original site’s heritage and context, developing 43% of the developable land available.
