After studying International Banking and Finance as well as Accountancy, I started my career at KPMG and, following a brief stint, was appointed CFO of First International Merchant Bank plc, the first foreign currency denominated bank in Malta. During my 6 year tenure at the Bank, I led the listing of the Bank on the Malta Stock Exchange, and was responsible for the acquisition and integration of a newly acquired forfaiting and factoring company that was listed on the London Stock Exchange. During this time, I spent over 18 months in the UK.
In 2003 I moved to the Middle East to head a Real Estate Investment Fund listed on the Kuwaiti and Bahraini Stock Exchange. Throughout my years in the Middle East, I was responsible for real estate investment and development in the region.
I have been an Executive Director of the Corinthia Group since 2005, being responsible for raising new capital, overseeing the development of a number of overseas projects and leading Mediterranean Investments Holding plc as CEO.
For the last 11 years, I acted as Chairman and later also as CEO of QPM Ltd, a design, engineering and management company.
I am passionate about real estate development, particularly master-planning and the execution of projects throughout the entire design, engineering and management phase.
