GOING FROM GOOD TO

AS GOOD IS SIMPLY NOT GOOD ENOUGH!

THE ONLY PLACE WHERE SUCCESS COMES BEFORE WORK IS IN THE DICTIONARY.

ABOUT ME

I’m one of those very lucky people who doesn’t think of their job as ‘a job’: I absolutely love it!

 

I was just 17 when I joined the Lombard Bank Malta Head Office, during which time I gained experience in the banking industry, Central Bank returns, International Swift transfers, Foreign Exchange business and much more.

 

Following two years in the banking industry I moved to Hardrocks Limited, one of Malta’s largest suppliers for the construction industry and property developers. During this time, I was exposed to some of Malta’s largest projects gaining extensive accounting experience in the industry, having to deal with massive barter operations, cash flow control, management accounts presentation, company management and more.


When I joined the ROCS Group as Financial Controller in 2001, I felt an instant kinship with the company. Everyone here shares an inbuilt passion. Within months I moved into the role of producer and co-presenter on Malta’s most-viewed TV show – Tista’ Tkun Int! alongside Rachel Vella. The show took us to over 75 countries in seven years, and we were even asked to represent top brands including Vodafone, BOV, FEXserv, Jaguar and the EU Introduction Committee. The highlights were fast and furious – including meetings with their Holinesses Pope John Paul II and Pope Benedict XIII, securing the Ambassadorship for Vodafone in 2006, and revealing the results of the first-ever Mitochondrial DNA test on Maltese TV. Despite the unmatched success of the show, we – as a Group – took the unanimous decision to close Tista’ Tkun Int! in 2007. The years that followed have provided wonderful challenges for us all, as well as key successes.

Among our fundamental moves, we united and rebranded the four companies within the Group as the ROCS Group. My efforts shifted to the overall running of the Group, with a particular focus on Finance and Business Development, locally and overseas. This has included the introduction of world-renowned make-up brand INGLOT to the Maltese market, and later to the Libyan and Yemeni markets, as well as the introduction of retail outlet Perfumes&more locally. We launched the first INGLOT The Studio worldwide and in 2018 we embarked on the retail space concept better known as MINUSTHTREE.

 

I am driven to think outside the box and enjoy inspiring our team by advising them that they are all shareholders of the company. This has made the ROCS Group a household name throughout Malta, as well as an official Maltese Superbrand. I now look to the future with excitement knowing we can build ROCS even further. I am also dedicated to my family, as well as travelling – the further away and more diverse the better!

 

Do reach out if you would like to discuss any of this further – I would love to hear from you.
