The Malta Gaming Authority has announced its new Chief Executive Officer, 30-year-old Carl Brincat.
Brincat, who is by profession a lawyer, previously held the role of Chief Legal and Enforcement Officer at the MGA and was selected following a highly-competitive selection process starting on the 17th December.
He succeeds Heathcliff Farrugia who stepped down last October to pursue his own business venture.
The newly-appointed CEO takes up the position after spending six years within the authority’s legal team.
“It is an honour to be selected to lead the organisation at such a critical juncture for the MGA and the industry alike,” Brincat said.
“It is essential that we cultivate stronger partnerships with other regulators and stakeholders, and the industry itself, to achieve a regulatory environment that accomplishes the MGA’s objectives as set out in the law in the most effective, transparent, and proportionate manner.”
