Malta-based freight forwarding and shipping company EuroBridge announced the appointment of Robert Cassar as its first-ever CEO.
Mr Cassar joined EuroBridge in June 2021 and has since been going through a handover process.
“Upon joining EuroBridge I found an organisation built around the customer, one always on the lookout to find new, innovative solutions to offer reliable logistics and shipping services,” Mr Cassar said.
“I look forward to being part of this success story, and in continuing to build upon David and the Eurobridge team’s work,” he continued.
EuroBridge’s outgoing Managing Director, David Abela, will be taking on the role of Director. Mr Abela will also take on the role of Consultant in the company’s business development sector.
Prior to his move to Director, Mr Abela held the role of Managing Director for 21 years.
“EuroBridge is going through a healthy growth phase, increasing in the number of customers, employees, and suppliers,” Mr Abela remarked.
“I am thrilled that Robert joined EuroBridge as CEO. He has a customer-centric approach to running the business, which is at the core of the company’s values. I’m sure he will take EuroBridge to the next level,” he continued.
Mr Cassar started his career with a series of roles at Vodafone, having touched upon the Marketing, Corporate Business Development, Sales, and Commercial spheres.
He went on to build a career in the logistics field when he moved to MaltaPost to lead its Business Relations and International Relations teams.
Presently, Mr Cassar also serves as a Visiting Lecturer at a number of local and international educational institutes.
