James Sciriha has been appointed as CareMalta’s new CEO, succeeding Natalie Briffa Farrugia.

Mr Sciriha will be supported by newly appointed COO Noel Borg, who served as Senior Nursing Manager at the company for the past years.

The new CareMalta CEO first joined the group in 2001 as a student worker. He rejoined the company as a Group Financial Controller in 2010, after working, specialising, and gaining experience in funds and securitisation locally and overseas.

In 2017, Mr Sciriha was appointed Director of Finance at CareMalta, a position which he held up until his latest promotion.

Mr Borg, on the other hand, joined CareMalta in 2005 as a Staff Nurse and was later appointed Deputy Manager. In 2010, Mr Borg took over as Facility Manager of Casa Arkati, Mosta, before being appointed Nursing Manager at Zammit Clapp Hospital Residential Home.

After four-and-a-half years, he was promoted to Senior Nursing Manager at CareMalta. Mr Borg is also a Non-Executive Director on the boards of HILA Homes Ltd and CareMalta Group Ltd.

Last December, long-standing Chairman of Vassallo Group Nazzareno Vassallo announced that he will be stepping down from his role and named Ms Briffa Farrugia as his successor.

In light of said appointment, Ms Briffa Farrugia had to step down from her role as CareMalta CEO.

Vassallo Group noted that Charlene Vella Vasallo has been appointed Director of CareMalta with a special focus on business development. Dr Vella Vassallo is also a Director and shareholder of Vassallo Group.

Group CEO Pio Vassallo, whilst congratulating the new appointees, stated that these changes will help the company retain its position as a market leader in the local care sector.
