On Sunday, APS Bank bid farewell to its colleague Wilhelm Attard who succumbed to his illness, which he had been fighting for the past three years.

“[On] 16th February, our colleague and friend lost his valiant fight at the age of 51,” the bank announced.

Despite the struggles, APS recalled Mr Attard’s commitment to contributing as a member of the bank’s senior management team by attending meetings until some months back.

Mr Attard had more than 25 years of experience in financial services including HSBC, Bank of Valletta, and Midland Bank in Malta. He also served as vice-secretary of the Institute of Financial Services.

He joined APS Bank in 2016, serving as Head of Operations and later as Head of Support.  

APS described Mr Attard as devoted to his dear family and his “beloved Inter FC.”

“But his colleagues especially remember him for his deep sense of duty and teamwork, and with a keen interest in continuous professional development,” the bank commented.

APS Bank also quoted Albert Einstein saying that death is not an end for those who can live on in those they leave behind. And Mr Attard, it added, was just that which is why the bank, the board, management, and staff “treasure greatly” their times with him.
