What is the Malta Business Network (MBN)?

The MBN was set up on an initiative of Joseph Zammit Tabona, then High Commissioner, following exploratory discussions with Christopher Jackson and Simon Galea. They went on to form a committee under Mr Zammit Tabona’s chairmanship. Eleven other members were elected to serve on the committee.  Together, they represent a diverse selection of industries and sectors, many of which are important to Malta’s economy.  Members hold business or professional roles and all have a strong connection to Malta either through their Maltese heritage or business interests. 

Now a
company limited by guarantee, the MBN continues to expand and grow, attracting members and speakers from across a varied range of professions and industries.

The primary objects of the MBN are:

- to promote business and professional opportunities in, or connected with, Malta by re-enforcing and expanding the existing good relations between members of the business and professional communities in Malta and the United Kingdom

- to promote the exchange of information and knowledge between members of the business and professional communities in Malta and the United Kingdom and to explore how they may work together on business and professional opportunities, projects and transactions in other countries and territories and

- to provide social and academic functions for members and guests of the Association

Governance

The Malta Business Network Association was originally set up as an unincorporated association on 6  December 2011. On 17 December 2012, an extraordinary general meeting was held during which the Malta Business Network Association transferred the operations, inclusive of bank balance and membership list of the Association, to a limited liability company called the Malta Business Network Limited.

The Members present at the said meeting authorised the three officials of the Association, namely Joseph Zammit Tabona (Chairman), Christopher Jackson (Secretary) and Simon Galea (Treasurer) to sign on behalf of the Association all the necessary documentation to transfer the activities of the Association to the Limited Liability Company.

Committee Members were invited to become Directors of the Limited Liability Company. They were Joseph Zammit Tabona (Chairman), Christopher Jackson (Secretary), Simon Galea (Treasurer), Noreen Cesareo, Martin Zahra, Karl Laferla, Luke Frendo, Charles Cassar, Charles Saliba, Richard Ogden, Charles Gerada and David Walsh. During the meeting it was also agreed that the shareholding of the Malta Business Network (Website) Limited, which company already operates the network’s website be transferred from Mr J. Zammit Tabona who was acting as a Nominee, to the new limited company. It was also agreed that the Association would cease its activities following termination of the meeting since moving forward, the newly formed company, Malta Business Network Limited, would be operating the Malta Business Network (MBN).  

The current Board of Directors (2016-2017) for the MBN UK are: Joseph Zammit Tabona (Chairman), Charles Gerada (Secretary), Martin Zahra (Treasurer), Noreen Cesareo, Perit Charles Saliba, Stephen Bullas, David Walsh, Peter Vella and Reuben Mifsud. HE Norman Hamilton, High Commissioner for Malta, is the President and a director of the MBN, in accordance with the company’s constitution.

The MBN launched a subsidiary, The Malta Business Network (Malta) Ltd in Malta on 2 October 2013.

The Malta Business Network (Malta) Ltd

A limited liability company titled The Malta Business Network (Malta) Ltd was formally registered on 3 July 2013. This is a wholly owned subsidiary of the Malta Business Network Ltd, a limited liability company that is registered in the UK. Both will be known as the Malta Business Network, the MBN in the UK will be referred to as the UK Branch, while the Malta MBN will be referred to as the Malta Branch.

The Board of Directors for The Malta Business Network (Malta) Ltd are: Joseph Zammit Tabona (Chairman), Dr David Tonna (Secretary),  Kevin Valenzia (Treasurer), Robert C. Aquilina, Anthony Farrugia and Charles Gerada.
