He served as CEO at HSBC Bank Malta for three years, and was primarily tasked with managing and supervising its operations.

“I’m very fortunate to have had the fantastic support of my wife and our children on our international adventures, for which I’m deeply grateful. The bank has enriched our personal lives beyond measure,” he explained.

“As a shareholder and pensioner, I shall continue to watch HSBC Group’s progress with great interest and a dash of pride,” he said, before wishing everyone the very best.
