Vassallo Group Malta Chairperson Natalie Briffa Farrugia on Tuesday outlined the group’s identity as a family business that has its values in place due to previous generations.
She was speaking following the Vassallo Group 2022 & Beyond: A Financial & Business Overview event which was held at The Malta Chamber. During the event, she shared “a number of meaningful milestones” the group achieved over the past year. Presentations were also delivered by Vassallo Group CEO Pio Vassallo and Director of Finance Stephen Borg.
The event was the first in a series of annual stakeholder meetings organised with the aim of “keeping in touch” with Vassallo Group’s business partners.
“Surely, the group’s main identity is that we are a family business with strong values passed on to us by previous generations,” she explained.
“Let us continue to build our future together through respect, integrity and excellence,” Ms Briffa Farrugia said.
Vassallo Group’s origins date back to 1946, when the late Piju Vassallo founded a partnership with his nephews to initially clear war debris from public buildings. The partnership ended less than a decade later and Vassallo Builders Ltd was eventually incorporated as a limited liability company, with Nazzareno Vassallo being appointed as its first Managing Director. Today it operates in various sectors, including property and construction, furniture and interiors, elderly and disability, catering, hospitality, architecture, energy and education.
