Architect David Xuereb is to be appointed Chairman of the Occupational Health and Safety Authority.
A graduate of the University of Malta and UK universities, Mr Xuereb has managed established companies and was entrusted with major projects both in Malta and abroad. Over the years he has been active in the sector of sustainable design and the green economy. He has taught and been asked to make presentations and speeches at various universities and institutions, with a particular interest in sustainability, the environment and climate change.
Up until last March, Mr Xuereb was the President of the Chamber of Commerce. He was also a director of Malta Enterprise, and the Building and Construction Authority which was set up recently.
He will be serving in this post after Dr Manuel Mallia, who has been the Chairman for the last few years, was approved to become Malta’s High Commissioner in the UK.
