I am a qualified accountant and a registered auditor in Malta. Building on the experience acquired in my earlier positions as CFO of Telecell, the Vodafone subsidiary, and as Operations Director of AX Holdings, a diversified Maltese group of companies, I launched into financial services in Malta 1997.

Over the years, I have travelled extensively across Europe, meeting clients and discussing cross-border activities, risks and related regulatory and compliance requirements. In so doing, I developed corporate expertise in the UK, Malta and Ireland assisting clients to find solutions for their international business or personal circumstances. What was apparent to me as I meet our international client base is that entrepreneurs have objectives and need solutions and, as a service provider, our task is to assist clients achieve their goals. This understanding induced me to transfer these principles to my management team, and now these attitudes are imprinted into our company culture.

I have created the DM Properties brand in order to assist clients who wish to buy or rent property in Malta. In this way we provide comprehensive solutions to clients seeking to relocate to Malta as part of a residency or citizenship application process. Our company is accredited by Identity Malta to represent clients during the application process of the various Malta residence programmes and the Malta Individual Investor Programme.

I am a member of the Investment Migration Council.
