The Malta Gaming Authority (MGA) is on the lookout for a new CEO as the current CEO, Carl Brincat, is set to step down on 25 January. Brincat has been at the helm of the MGA since January 2021 and the search for his replacement has already begun.
The MGA aims to have a new CEO in place before Brincat’s departure, and the chosen candidate will have the opportunity to shadow Brincat for several weeks before officially taking on the role on 26 January.
According to Ryan Pace, MGA chairperson, Brincat has made significant contributions to the MGA and the gaming industry in Malta. Pace expressed confidence in Brincat’s successor and thanked him for leaving behind a strong foundation as the organization continues to pursue its strategic goals.
The MGA is seeking a dynamic, passionate, and highly influential strategic thinker to join its team as CEO. The CEO will report to the board of governors and will be responsible for executing the Authority’s strategy and ensuring the efficient and effective operation of its functions as set out in the law.
The job requirements for the incoming CEO include a minimum of a bachelor’s degree or an equivalent qualification, with qualifications in law, accountancy, finance, or business administration being preferable. The candidate should also have a minimum of five years of experience in senior roles, with prior regulatory experience considered an asset, as well as the ability to handle a range of stakeholder relations across public and private sectors.
Interested candidates are required to submit a CV detailing their major accomplishments and how they meet the eligibility criteria, along with three references and a cover letter. Top candidates will be invited for an interview with the MGA’s selection panel, and a maximum of three candidates will be invited for a second interview. If none of the candidates are suitable, the MGA reserves the right to not select any of them.
The MGA is committed to finding a suitable successor for Brincat and ensuring a smooth transition as it continues to oversee the gaming industry in Malta.
