Etienne Attard Express Trailers CEO

Transport and logistics company Express Trailers on Tuesday named Etienne Attard as its new CEO.

Mr Attard, who for the past seven years has occupied the role of General Manager at automotive company Kind’s Auto Sales Ltd, started his career over 30 years ago in the maritime industry, working in port operations for 15 years before moving to the banking sector and subsequently, into the construction and retail sectors.

Commenting about his appointment, Mr Attard said that the logistics sector remains “challenging, dynamic, complex and fast-paced”. “This is why my priority will be to ensure that the group remains the leading total logistics company in Malta and the operator of choice for clients desiring a true quality service through continued investment in technology, by leading the sector in the areas of ESG and to grow our operations locally and beyond,” he added.

In a message of welcome to the new CEO, Chairman Edmond Brincat said that Mr Attard’s academic background in logistics and transport will “surely facilitate” the transition and adaptation at Express Trailers.

“Mr Attard is a dynamic business leader who is value-driven and brings a diverse background of experiences and an excellent record. We are highly confident that with the support of the professional and experienced colleagues who surround him and who have been with Express for decades, he will prove his operational effectiveness and experience,” he continued.

Mr Attard expressed his pride at having been selected to lead Express Trailers in the coming years.

“Before joining the company, I always regarded Express Trailers as one of the main leaders in the transport sector with a passion for logistics. Now that I am in the office I am witnessing from within the values of Express Group, the talent of my colleagues and their commitment to the company and to its customers’ needs and expectations,” he said.

Turning to his focus, he said that his commitment will be to “continue building on the core values and success” of the company by working closely with the Board Directors as well as with his colleagues to “ensure that they continue to pursue their professional growth”.

“I also plan to continue to improve our brand image and to collaborate more closely with our customers,” Mr Attard concluded.
