Stephen Xuereb, CEO at Valletta Cruise Port plc and COO and Global Ports Holding, was presented an award for promoting sustainable tourism by The Mediterranean Tourism Foundation (MTF).

Mr Xuereb took to social media to celebrate this achievement, dedicating the award “to all the team at Global Ports Holding and Valletta Cruise Port.”

Established in 2013 by the Malta Hotels and Restaurants Association (MHRA), the MTF is spurred forward by its mission of transforming the Mediterranean into an area of peace, cooperation, and prosperity by investing and promoting sustainable tourism growth across the region.

Mr Xuereb is a long-standing member of the travel-tourism industry, having joined Valletta Cruise Port back in 2002. Since then, he has served as Chief Financial Officer, CEO, and Board Member within the company.

Every year, the Valletta Cruise Port ushers thousands of passengers, crew members, and cruise ships into Malta’s capital, offering a combination of location, practicality, and versatility.

The port’s shore-side operations are complemented by a plethora of shops, cafes, restaurants, and amenities housed within the Valletta Waterfront – a collection of restored 18th century warehouses situated along the water’s edge.

Mr Xuereb’s other place of work, Global Ports Holding, is a London-based cruise port operator with an established presence in the Caribbean, Mediterranean, and Asia-Pacific regions.

The company was established in 2004 as an international port operator with a diversified portfolio of cruise and commercial ports.

Mr Xuereb also serves as Board Member at the Tarato Cruise Port, Catania Cruise Port, Cagliari Cruise Port, Lisbon Cruise Port, Antigua Cruise Port, and Zadar Cruise Port.
