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!

Angele Gaffiero

Angele speaks: ๐Ÿ‡ฌ๐Ÿ‡ง ๐Ÿ‡ฒ๐Ÿ‡น

I am quite the extrovert, and you wonโ€™t catch me going home early after a day of work! I love meeting friends and getting to know new people from different walks of life, which allows me to be open-minded and better my way of thinking! For me, relaxation time means surrounding myself with food; from walking through a supermarket, cooking, or dining out! My motto is EAT โ€“ MEET- SLEEP โ€“ REPEAT!

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!

Gabby Zahra

Gabby speaks: ๐Ÿ‡ฌ๐Ÿ‡ง ๐Ÿ‡ฒ๐Ÿ‡น

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

Nelly Arnal

Nelly speaks: ๐Ÿ‡ซ๐Ÿ‡ท ๐Ÿ‡ฌ๐Ÿ‡ง

Originally from France, I fell in love with Malta so much that I decided to move here. You will find me out and about, ready to guide you around all the hiking trails on the island. I am passionate about adventure and love to explore new countries spontaneously, often without much planning ahead. My motivation: we only have one life!

I love my work, travelling, football, cars, summer days, sunsets, good food and wine โ€“ in no particular order!

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.

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

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!

A lover of the simple things in life, Jade enjoys filling her time with good food, good music and great company. Naturally, Jade is passionate about travel and loves to discover new destinations whenever she can. Sheโ€™s also the sportiest one out of the Alpine Team, but her all-time favourite way to unwind is by watching the sunset at her favourite beach in Malta โ€“ Riviera Bay โ€“ especially when paired with a glass of wine!
