Hudson Malta plc on Friday announced that Joseph A. Borg has been appointed Director at its guarantor, Hudson Malta Sales Ltd, with effect from 22nd December.
He replaces Felice Ilacqua, who resigned from the position with effect on the same day.
Mr Borg was Co-Founder and Managing Director at fashion company Trilogy Limited and led negotiations between Hudson and Trilogy in 2021 which saw the introduction of a number of premium fashion brands including Calvin Klein Jeans, Tommy Hilfiger, Tommy Jeans, Armani Exchange, and Mango to Hudson Group’s brand portfolio.
