In January 2023 I was appointed CEO at BNF Bank p.l.c., joining the Bank’s Executive Committee. Through communication and trust, I will continue to steer the Bank on its growth journey, backed by a diligent and ambitious team. At BNF Bank we strive to make a positive difference in our communities, offering our personal and business clients highly personalised products and services, through a network of 12 retail branches spread across the Maltese Islands, as well as an international presence through its branch in London.
