“My first box ticked,” said JD Group CEO Franco Azzopardi, following the successful completion of an €11 million bond issue that will be used to expand their Ħal Far factory and continue work on a project on Birkirkara.

Mr Azzopardi, who took over as Chief Executive on 12th June, described these first days as a “baptism of fire”.

“Took the baton in the last sprint home for this bond issuance,” he said on a social media post.

Commenting further on the first part of the pivotal “first 100 days”, Mr Azzopardi said he is “happy leading” a “great fast-paced team.”

Looking forward, he added that there are “more projects in the bucket list”.
