Malta Gaming Authority names new CEO


The Board of Governors of the Malta Gaming Authority has selected Charles Mizzi to succeed Carl Brincat as Chief Executive Officer of the MGA, with effect from 26 January 2024.

The appointment follows the public call issued on 30 October 2023 and the selection process which ensued thereafter. Mr Mizzi will be shadowing Dr Brincat throughout January to ensure a smooth transition at the helm of the Authority.

Mr Mizzi will join the MGA following a 5-year tenure at the helm of the Residency Malta Agency, where he has been instrumental in leading the organisation towards its goal of ensuring that Malta is one of the most reputable and desirable residencies by investment jurisdictions. As a dynamic and results-driven professional with extensive experience in operations management, the Board of Governors is in no doubt that he will continue to build on the solid foundations that he will find at the Authority.

“I am honoured to have been given the opportunity to lead the Authority,” Mr Mizzi said.

“I am keen to build on past successes and, together with the team under the guidance of the Minister responsible and the Board of Governors, to strategically steer the Authority forward so that Malta’s already robust position in the field may be further strengthened, while delivering value to all stakeholders.”

Minister for the Economy, EU Funds and Lands Silvio Schembri thanked Dr Brincat for his sterling service as CEO over the past 3 years and congratulated Mr Mizzi on his appointment.

“With his vast experience in managing the operations of a number of entities and his contributions towards major projects, Charles Mizzi is undoubtedly the right candidate to continue building on what the MGA has achieved so far, and lead his excellent colleagues within the Authority towards further future success,” the Hon. Minister Schembri said.
