Dominic Cortis, Non-Executive Director and former Senior Lecturer, took to social media to bid farewell to the University of Malta, marking the end of a 10-year tenure in academia.
He will now be joining Argus Insurance (Europe) as Head of Actuarial – Property and Casualty.
Dr Cortis’ first experience in academia commenced in 2011 at the University of Malta. In 2012 he took on the role of Graduate Teaching Assistant at the University of Leicester.
He spent just under six years at said university, over which period he was promoted to Lecturer and Course Director.
In September 2017, Dr Cortis re-joined the University of Malta as a Lecturer in its Department of Insurance. After almost four years in that role, he was promoted to Senior Lecturer – a position which he held up until this month.
“Today I cleared my office at the University of Malta. After more than a decade in academia, I feel lucky to have held two tenured positions,” Dr Cortis wrote.
“During the past four years I was fortunate enough to work with some brilliant minds, lecture over a thousand students, supervise some excellent dissertations and publish academic work that placed me in top 10 in my faculty,” he continued.
Since 2017, Dr Cortis has also held the position of Non-Executive Director at One Insurance Limited. From 2018 to 2020, the former Lecturer held the position of Actuarial Consultant at KPMG Malta.
“As clichéd as it may sound, I thank my students as I learned a lot from you,” Dr Cortis concluded.
This comes after Martin Saliba’s term ended after three years at the helm.
He first joined the organisation in 2015 as Head of Business Development
He leaves Esports Entertainment Group after a year as Vice President of Information Security.
Co-Founder Jörgen Nordlund will take over the position on an interim basis until a replacement is found.
