Malta Tourism Authority announces the appointment of its new Director for Italy. Ester Tamasi, a name that is well known in the Italian market having been part of the MTA team for over 10 years, will succeed Claude Zammit Trevisan at the helm of MTA’s Italian office.

Gavin Gulia, Chairman Malta Tourism Authority, welcomed Ester to her new position

“We are sure that Ester will be able to follow up on the important goals achieved by the outgoing Director, Claude Zammit Trevisan, who, having acquired a strong international experience in the UK, France and Italy markets, will return to Malta to devote himself to new projects of a global nature on behalf of the Authority,” he said.

Carlo Micallef, Deputy CEO & Chief Marketing Officer, Malta Tourism Authority, said: "After a careful selection among the dozens of applications received, we chose without hesitation Ester Tamasi, rewarding her undeniable knowledge of the market and the tourism sector in Italy, as well as her proven propensity for adopting a dynamic and fresh approach to promotional strategies. By promoting Ester from her previous role, already fundamental in MTA, we wanted to ensure an important methodological continuity that will certainly be appreciated by our partners.”

Ester Tamasi comes to the position of Director after having held the designation of Marketing Manager in recent years and having acquired more than a decade of experience within the MTA team, playing a fundamental role in the re-launch of the Italian office, in 2009.

Starting with a degree in Tourism Sciences, Ester’s career is wholly dedicated to the sector. She has held many operational roles in the hotel & hospitality, transportation and tour operating sectors, which have enabled her to consolidate the foundations of her preparation.

She has also obtained numerous degrees of specialisation and advanced training, both in Italy and abroad.

Since 2017 she has coordinated the launch of the brand Conventions Malta in Italy, of which she has become the main contact for MTA for the MICE segment, achieving excellent results in terms of product positioning and development.
