Managing Director

Warren Zahra

Warren speaks: ๐Ÿ‡ฌ๐Ÿ‡ง ๐Ÿ‡ฒ๐Ÿ‡น

Born and raised in London, I enjoyed traveling from an early age and have always loved our industry. When it comes to having a break with my wife Debbie, I always prefer a city break โ€“ my hometown remains my favourite city to visit, while my other favourites would be New York City and Rome. I love dining out โ€“ Indian food and pizza being my favourite โ€“ paired with good craft beers and wines. I also have a collection of over 1000 marvel comics, and my favourite musical genres are Hip Hop and the golden oldies (especially from Italy), but I can listen to everything. I have been a Chelsea fan since my late Father took me to Stamford Bridge in 1969. At home we have five cats and two adult children who I love dearlyโ€ฆ and most of them are well behaved.

Iโ€™m a proud mum to five cats and two children, with a passion for cooking and trying out new recipes! My favourite kind of holiday involves lots of shopping and food & drink, no matter the destination. I adore rainy days and winter, and, when Iโ€™m not organising events, youโ€™ll find me at home with a cup of tea!

Groups Executive

Adam Balakrishnan

Adam speaks: ๐Ÿ‡ฌ๐Ÿ‡ง ๐Ÿ‡ฒ๐Ÿ‡น

Passionate about cooking, eating and shopping, and an occasional glass of wine or whiskey. Outgoing, social and always looking for a good laugh. If Iโ€™m not at home watching movies or tv shows, Iโ€™m out and about soaking up the sun keeping busy!

Mary Grace speaks: ๐Ÿ‡ฌ๐Ÿ‡ง ๐Ÿ‡ฒ๐Ÿ‡น ๐Ÿ‡ฎ๐Ÿ‡น ๐Ÿ‡ซ๐Ÿ‡ท ๐Ÿ‡ช๐Ÿ‡ธ

Take this wanna-be Spice Girl shopping and Iโ€™ll be your best friend forever! Travelling the world and discovering new places are my passions, but my go-to happy place will always be watching the sunset with a good book and a glass of wine in hand.

Bethina speaks: ๐Ÿ‡ฌ๐Ÿ‡ง ๐Ÿ‡ฉ๐Ÿ‡ฐ ๐Ÿ‡ณ๐Ÿ‡ฑ ๐Ÿ‡ฉ๐Ÿ‡ช ๐Ÿ‡ช๐Ÿ‡ธ ๐Ÿ‡ฒ๐Ÿ‡น

Iโ€™m a polyglot adventure-seeker who loves to travel with my family and friends. I love outdoor activities like swimming and skiing as much as I love being indoors doing crafts and listening to music. My favourite time of the year is Christmas, but I love meeting friends to enjoy great food and fine wine no matter the season!

I love spending sunny days at the beach, enjoying the sea, swimming and trying to keep fitโ€ฆ even on colder days! I have a little ginger cat called Cookie, and when Iโ€™m not at the beach I enjoy good food with great company.

Reservations Executive

Marie Louise Buttigieg

Marie Louise speaks: ๐Ÿ‡ฌ๐Ÿ‡ง ๐Ÿ‡ฒ๐Ÿ‡น ๐Ÿ‡ฎ๐Ÿ‡น

I love going on long walks in winter and swimming during the summer, as much as I love trying new recipes in the kitchen and caring for my many, many houseplants. My book collection is very meaningful to me, and I would never ever throw one away!

Groups Executive

Francesca Pustizzi

Francesca speaks: ๐Ÿ‡ฎ๐Ÿ‡น ๐Ÿ‡ฌ๐Ÿ‡ง ๐Ÿ‡ช๐Ÿ‡ธ

Travel, music and culture are three of my passions โ€“ especially when combined into one trip! I love to help people in need, and I would like to form part of an NGO to do just that. I enjoy being in nature whenever I can, walking in the countryside, reading a book by the sea, or just waiting for the sun to set.

Graphic Designer

Christopher Brown

Christopher speaks: ๐Ÿ‡ฌ๐Ÿ‡ง ๐Ÿ‡ฟ๐Ÿ‡ฆ

Iโ€™m originally from South Africa, and 15 years ago I moved to Malta and joined Alpine Sterling. Iโ€™ve also been a DJ for the past 13 years, and I love both of these jobs. Iโ€™m fascinated with Asia and Iโ€™ve been to India three times as a volunteer to help abandoned children, although my favourite country Iโ€™ve visited so far is Sri Lanka. I also have a love for making and baking food and Iโ€™m currently doing an online chef course. If I had to choose a favourite cuisine, it would have to be Thai but please donโ€™t make me pick just one!
