George Farrugia has represented MGI Malta as active members since the early nineties and has shown a tremendous commitment to the network and the brand during that time. 

George has always proven himself as an expert when it comes to maximising opportunities brought about by belonging to our global accountancy group, from sponsoring high-profile events to partnering with other member firms to help with urgent client issues that required immediate action.

Tributes from colleagues

Dario Galloni and Giovanni Triunfo of MGI De Leone-Triunfo-Galloni & Associati in Milan, Italy, sent the following message to George:

"It has been a great privilege and a true pleasure to work with you over these years.

Whenever we had the good fortune to work with your firm, we did so safely in the knowledge that we were in the capable hands of highly competent persons deserving of the utmost trust.

Those of our clients to whom you have provided assistance have always been full of praise not only for your meticulous and skillful professionalism but also for your ability to make them feel listened to and protected.

As you now prepare to close this important chapter of your professional career, you must surely feel great satisfaction that your years of work have earned you the sincere admiration and affection of so many of us.

We wish you the very best as you embark on the next stage of your journey."

A special thank you from our CEO, Clive Viegas Bennett


Clive has shared a close professional and personal relationship with George for the past decade and was delighted to be part of the celebration of his retirement. Sharing his thoughts via a personal video message, Clive commented,

“I don’t think we’ve ever had a more enthusiastic, more committed or more engaged member.

He went on to say that while George will be missed, he knows that MGI Malta is still in very good hands. George’s retirement has led to a change of management structure at MGI Malta, with a number of new senior appointments being announced.


As we all join to wish George a happy retirement, Clive’s parting words echo perfectly how everyone at MGI Worldwide with CPAAI is feeling,

“Thank you, George. A lot of us will miss you, but I know it won’t be the last time that we see you.”
