Banking and risk management specialist Maruska Buttigieg Gili has tendered her resignation as Chief Risk Officer (CRO) at BNF Bank plc, it shared on Friday.

She will remain in office up till the end of 2022 to “ensure a smooth transition” for the bank. BNF Bank thanked her for her 15 years of “loyal service”, and also wished her every success in her new endeavours.

Therefore, the bank has initiated the process to identify a suitable replacement, subject to regulatory approval, within “the shortest time possible”.

Ms Buttigieg started working at BNF Bank in 2007, initially as Head of Unit, Control and Compliance Department, a position she worked in for over six years when the bank was still operating under the name Banif Bank. Up until the bank’s rebrand in 2017, she served as Head of Internal Control Department. Following that, she was named CRO, and has remained in the position since.

Prior to her time at BNF Bank, she worked at the Central Bank of Malta for more than 12 years, first as a member of the Human Resources Department, and then as Senior Economic Statistician.

Ms Buttigieg is a Master of Arts in Economics and Bachelor of Science in Financial Services graduate from University of Malta and The University of Manchester respectively. She also has an associate degree from The London Institute of Banking and Finance.

BNF Bank has a network of 12 retail branches spread across Malta, aiming to be “the bank of choice” for individuals and businesses by creating products and digital banking services that offer solutions for customers and facilitate growth. The bank’s operations are based on its values of ambition, responsibility, and empathy.
