UP has come a long way since its inception 5 years ago. We are very
thankful to all the companies and individuals that have trusted us and
helped us grow to one of the leading executive coaching organisations in Malta.

Our recent investment in the Vistage brand is also helping us scale
internationally as well as bring global thought leaders to our shores to
support local business leaders and their development.

UP scales operations 
Looking into the future, we are pleased to announce the appointment of Julian Azzopardi as UP CEO who will enable the company to continue
growing and strengthening its core competencies, while maintaining the original values and methodologies on which its foundations were built. 
Julian brings to the table a wealth of experience from his former CEO
position at JAYE, a non-profit education institution specialising in
providing entrepreneurship education programmes to young people. 
The UP team was also further strengthened earlier this year with the
addition of Desiree Perez as Head Coach. Nathan will continue to chair the Vistage Malta CEO groups and support our key clients on their ongoing programmes, whilst supporting the rest of the UP team with
their own development. We are extremely lucky to have Julian on board as CEO, with Desiree taking on the growth of our coaching business while Daphne focuses on Vistage.

New role at Shireburn 
Earlier this year, we announced an investment by Shireburn Software, a
leading software products company, as shareholder that enabled UP to
expand both locally and internationally. Nathan will now be taking up a separate role as CEO for Shireburn Software and is looking forward to lead the team of more than 60 professionals, many of which we’ve been coaching for the past year as part of their professional development programme we ran through UP. 

Through our partnership with Shireburn, we aim to develop further
digital learning and coaching tools to reach a wider international
audience whilst supporting our local clients with leading edge
performance and change management programmes.
The planned transition is gradual and designed to ensure ongoing
business as usual! 

The UP team appreciates your ongoing engagement with our activities
and we hope this will continue long into the future!
